This month, Natural Awakenings Hawaii completed the steps to become a Blue Zones Project Participating Organization. The Blue Zones Project is working towards creating a healthier environment for the well-being of our community where we live, work and play.

We are honored to be a part of this growing movement and fully support the actions that are designed provide us with healthy opportunities, making is easier for us to eat better, move about town more naturally and become more socially connected.

The Wahiawa Lions Club also became a Blue Zones Project Participating Organization. Their certificate was presented at their annual benefit breakfast held at the Kaala Elementary School on April 8, in Wahiawa. All proceeds of the event go towards their community service projects, such as scholarships, the Veterans Day parade and much more.

Heidi Tsuneyoshi, President of the Wahiawa Lion Club, said “We are proud to support the Blues Zones Project, helping people make healthier choices in what they eat and becoming more active.” Carolyn Hayashi, Secretary, echoed the sentiment: “We supported the Blue Zones Project from the start, promoting a healthier community for seniors and kids.”
