Relay For Life, Your Volunteers

Delta Day Of Hope “Our Destination Is An End To Cancer” to support Relay For Life

Honolulu’s Delta Airlines employees sent two teams to participate in this year’s Jet Drag.  Each team must raise $1000 to enter this nationwide competition where teams pull a 167,000 lb jet 20-feet.  Now in it’s seventh year, the Delta drag raised a record breaking  $350,000 and expecting to reach $450,000 by August.  Locally Delta Airlines raised over $2500 in 2015 and is aiming to increase their fundraising dollars in 2016.  On May 11th Delta Airlines hosted a mini Relay For Life at the Honolulu International Airport where all were invited to support their team by purchasing lunch bentos from Tanioka’s, jewelry from Tiare Polynesia, and much much more.  Like Relay, we honored Survivors with Luminaria.  This year’s Hero of Hope, Kehau Matsumoto, came to support the employees of Delta as well as inspire all with her story.
