Proceeds from this year’s event will help fund Kuakini’s new research building, which will house Kuakini Medical Center’s internationally recognized research projects as well as provide a secure repository for the priceless collection of blood and tissue samples and research data that has been acquired from Kuakini’s research participants over the past 40 years. The samples and data will be maintained for ongoing and future research studies.
