Aloha Hawaii Rush Big Island Ohana,
With everything going on, I know a lot of local businesses are struggling in our community right now and I just wanted to offer myself and my team’s support for your business or any local business that you may know of.
As many of you know, our fall season was cancelled due to COVID-19 so I have 15 of my 30 players here this fall doing online schooling from Hilo and we are trying to get out and volunteer in the community as much as possible. Whether the business needs labor or if it is a restaurant, we have some ideas that we may be able to help with.
If your business or someone you know has a business that is in need of any kind of help, please let us know.
Like I mentioned above, our 2020 season has been cancelled due to COVID-19, and with that, we are looking toward the Spring/Fall of 2021. We are expecting our budget to be extremely tight going forward, and are looking to raise money to continue to provide the best possible experience for our student athletes.
Donate and Get a Mask!
With a $15 donation to our women’s soccer foundation account (link below), you will receive a Hawaii Hilo soccer mask. We will use the funds raised for non-conference travel in the Fall of 2021, gear, etc.
If you do donate, please send a screenshot of your email confirmation showing the amount donated (for verification of the donation), and your address to me so I can send your masks (send to firstname.lastname@example.org).
We just placed the order today so the masks are about 4 weeks out. While supplies last, so first come, first serve.
If you are having problems accessing the link below, just let me know and I’ll send you the link in another way.
If you have any questions, please let me know. Stay healthy and safe!
Coach Gene Okamura
