Hawaii Community FCU's ongoing support for cancer research continues.

Through heartfelt efforts to support the community and to raise money for cancer research, Hawaii Community Federal Credit Union’s Kailua-Kona, Kaloko and Kealakekua branches donated more than $9,500 to the 2019 American Cancer Society Relay for Life – Kona event. The monies were raised through in-branch ribbon sales, staff donations and fundraisers.  HCFCU staff also sold ooey gooey “Slime” during the relay, which was a huge hit with kids. The event was held in August at Hale Halawai in Kailua-Kona.  

Relay for Life is a non-profit community fundraising initiative that supports cancer research, acknowledges cancer survivors and remembers those who lost their battle against the disease.
