Never Quit Challenge Charities

NQC approaches fundraising in a collaborative manner.  Organizer, Shawn Alladio of Kanalu K38 and the 3 select non-profit charities realize that not one organization is capable of providing all the care our Warriors deserve.  As you read above there tends to be a theme amongst the 3 charities' missions.  We support Veterans during transitions in life and help them realize their full potential.  However, we each have our own unique approach that compliments each other’s efforts serving our Veterans and their families.

KANALU K38 - Hawaiian Struggle to Adapt to National Association of State Boating Law Administrators Standards


Hawai'i has faced a difficulty phase emerging in the boater education outreach to a professionally and standardized effort for safe and responsible boater education problems.

On the show link listed below we discussed the ongoing problems and addressied the solutions that are in place, and how the shortfalls are compromised between separate agencies leadership, vision and accountability towards conformity. 

Who is qualified to teach boating safety standards and who isn't?

The National Association of State Boating Law Administrators is our lead guide to base our training programs from. All Kanalu K38 instructors are National Safe Boating Council certified educators.  Kanalu K38 has led the way for boating education in the Hawaiian islands since 2007 following their National Safe Boating Councils (NSBC) Instructor Training.

The NSBC Instructor course is designed to prepare instructor candidates to teach effective NASBLA-approved basic boating safety courses to recreational boaters nationwide
