Blue Zones Project - Wahiawa has officially launched with three days of events drawing over 750 people. Community members came out to eat a delicious Blue Zones inspired, plant-based meal and to hear the Blue Zones story.
Blue Zones Project - Wahiawa wrapped up their kickoff weekend with the School's Out For Summer Kickoff Celebration at Kaala Elementary School. In addition to live performances, ono plant-based food, demonstrations and workshops, and tons of keiki activities, attendees were introduced to over 60 participating organizations, 50 of which were from Wahiawa, sharing information on health and wellness. Attendees were also given the opportunity to save lives by donating blood at the Blook Bank of Hawaii Bloodmobile. Many folks left with resources to help them live longer, healthier, and happier lives.
Participating organizations were presented with certificates over three days. Blue Zones Project - Wahiawa kicked off a weekend full of events with their Blue Zones Project Dinner hosted by Wahiawa Seventh-Day Adventist Church with food prepared by Wahiawa Hongwanji Mission. Community members of different faith-based organizations came together to listen to the Blue Zones Story and share what wellness means to them.
Mahalo to everyone who attended or volunteered at Blue Zones Project - Wahiawa's Kickoff celebrations this past weekend! We are excited to join other Blue Zones Project communities in making your community a healthier and happier place to live, work, and play.
