Mahalo to our local customers for your support toward a worthwhile cause! $33,000 was raised for the Marcus Mariota Motiv8 Foundation during the months of September and October. Contributions were made through the purchase of Kokua Pacs and special Motiv8 cutouts, along with donation canisters at all Zippy’s locations. Proceeds went directly toward programs and resources to help motivate young people to dream big through education and athletics.
The Marcus Mariota Motiv8 Foundation was established in 2015 during his rookie year of professional football. Seeing the positive power of sports first-hand, he used his platform as a professional athlete to create change. Named after Mariota’s lifelong jersey number, and tying into the “808” area code of his hometown in Honolulu, Hawaii, the Motiv8 Foundation works to promote and support a healthy mind and body among youth in Hawaii, Oregon and Tennessee. The foundation’s programming centers around the tools for success that will allow more children to be fully matriculate through grade school and eventually attend college.
