Surf4HUGS Will Again Put Smiles on the Faces  of Seriously Ill Keiki

HONOLULU - HUGS, the local non-profit helping Hawaii families with seriously ill children for more than 30 years, will enjoy a fun-filled day of sun and surf at the annual Surf4HUGS at Kuhio beach on Saturday, August 2 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Local family, the Thomases – Brett, Dee and their children Torrey and Leila – created Surf4HUGS when Torrey and Leila came up with the idea of combining sun, play and exercise with the HUGS mission of caring for seriously ill children and their families.    

“My wife and I started Surf4HUGS as a way to teach our children the value of giving back,” said Brett Thomas. “And in a way, this event has given back to our family – 10 years of beautiful memories, forming bonds with HUGS families and seeing our community come together every year for this wonderful local non-profit that takes care of Hawaii families.”
