‘The Game Changers’ screening to benefit KCS paddling

The Maui News

Coach Niko Miller along with students from Kihei Charter School will be hosting an on-campus community health night on Dec. 4 at 6 p.m.

The event — a fundraiser for the Kihei Charter canoe paddling team — will feature a showing of the sports nutrition documentary “The Game Changers.”

The film explores the benefits of a plant-based diet for athletes. Among the film’s producers are James Cameron, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jackie Chan, Lewis Hamilton, Novak Djokovic and Chris Paul.

Following the showing, there will be a question-and-answer discussion featuring a panel of local experts including Dr. Irminne Van Dyken, Liat Miller, Paul Romero, Kevin Watkins and Miller.

There is a suggested $2 donation for the film, as well as $10 adult plates and $5 kids plates for concessions. Other concessions include food from Whole Foods Market, Monsoon India, Fork and Salad, Maui Raw and Sansei Seafood Restaurant & Sushi Bar.

All proceeds go toward the Kihei Charter paddling team’s voyage to Lanai for a Hawaiian cultural exchange with the Pine Lads and Lasses team.

Donations can also be made through the mobile payment service app Venmo. Payment should be made to the South Maui Learning Ohana, with “GameChangers” listed under “What’s it for?”
