Motiv8 Foundation: Creating & Providing Opportunities

The Motiv8 Foundation last week lost a good friend. Willie Kealoha was a friend of the Foundation who helped us at all of our Oregon events. He participated in every golf tournament we held along with his son Mark and his life long friends Herb and Donna Yamanaka. He was an integral part of any time we needed Hawaiian entertainment for our golf events and the blessing of the Marcus Mariota Sports Performance Center on the University of Oregon campus.

Willie had an infectious smile and a never ending positive attitude. He was full of life and was always offering his help and support to anything Motiv8 was doing in Oregon. He grew up in Hawaii but soon found a home in Eugene after attending the University.

Willie’s contributions will be greatly missed. Our prayers go out to the Kealoha family and his big Oregon family and friends. We will miss you Willie! Mahalo for everything you did to help the Foundation and its mission.
