Created 10 years ago, Paddle Imua is an annual multiple-discipline paddle race in support of Camp Imua, a week-long recreational camp experience for children with special needs. Paddle Imua brings the ocean sports community together to celebrate the lives of these children by embracing our connection to the ocean.

Camp Imua has a rich 45-year history on Maui of providing unique overnight recreational camp experiences for children with special needs. Camp Imua is constantly evolving to address the needs in our community, always seeking to create a space where peers with all levels of ability are able to fully engage, connect, and support each other. Our adaptive recreational camps are the perfect place for children to build relationships, learn new skills, and have the time of their lives!
In celebration of our second year as a Global Event, we've initiated a fun way to connect all of our supporters from around the world to celebrate and empower children with special needs and their families. Help Paddle Imua go viral by tagging and sharing photos of your Paddle Imua journey - from race preparations and conditioning all the way through your race day - on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. These children inspire us to do better each and every day – let’s return the favor by sharing this important event with all of our friends, family, fellow ocean sports enthusiasts, and communities across the world. Our children are watching and cheering you on virtually. Let’s make them proud!
