Mike Balik Memorial

Saturday, April 15, 2017


The 4th Annual Mike Balik Memorial Long Distance Race is held at Kukui’ula Small Boat Harbor. This signature Kukui’ula Outrigger Canoe Club race has been renamed and dedicated to Mike Balik, a member of our paddling ohana, who lost a battle with leukemia. We honor him and his paddling passion by spreading aloha on the water and throughout the paddling community.
