A representative for the Blue Zones Project reached out to me recently and it sounds like they have a neat program. It seems to be a well-being initiative with a goal of helping people here in Hawaii communities to have healthier, happier lives. It looks like they do this through various offerings, including classes, workshops, and demos/presentations on things like cooking and gardening, opportunities to get engaged and active, and more.
On May 6th (3-4pm) & 7th (11-12pm), they'll have a "Walking Moai" launch event at a few different community locations. They'll be forming new walking groups as part of the Windward Oahu Strut Challenge... a 10-week walking challenge to move naturally, connect with your community, and represent your neighborhood, with a chance to win prizes (I hear one prize might be a tour of Coconut Island for 8)! They'll have live entertainment, healthy snacks, and activities for the entire family! They have events for Kaneohe and Kahaluu on May 6th (3-4pm). They also have events for Kailua (11-12pm) and Waimanalo (12-1pm) on May 7th.

I'm a homeschooling mom of three, enjoying our time in Hawaii and hoping to share some of that experience with you, including ideas, reviews, resources, and information.
