Hilo, Hawaiʻi ~ Team Kahele joined hundreds of other participants at the 2014 Relay For Life to fight cancer Saturday night as Tropical Storm Wali dumped torrential rains and flash floods on Hilo.  All who attended had a great time trying to stay dry under Team Kaheleʻs tent which featured a chili/rice dinner, “memory hearts” purchased the night before and LB stickers in honor of Team Kahele member Les Botelho who passed away earlier this year from cancer. Mahalo Nui Loa to all those who attended and volunteered their time to set up, breakdown, bring a pot luck dish and walk with Senator Gil Kahele as Team Kahele raised over $5000.00 to fight cancer!
