Hawai‘i Alliance of Nonprofit Organizations recognized Hawai‘i Island’s PATH during HANOCON.

Peoples Advocacy for Trails Hawaii was the Community Collaborator Awardee. This is the first time PATH has a received an award from the statewide organization earlier this month.

“For PATH and our collaborators to be honored by our peer group of nonprofit organizations is very validating and we are grateful for the recognition of our of the collaborative efforts that help to make our island a safer, healthier and better place to live,” said Tina Clothier, strategic projects director for PATH.

PATH posted a video on its Facebook page about the award and what their organization is all about.



PATH works with state, county and local leaders to create infrastructure for bikeways, sidewalks and pathways for safer travel. The group also goes out to elementary schools and teaches children how to ride a bike.


HANO recognized the nonprofit as it has shown a commitment to working collaboratively with other organizations — nonprofit, for profit or government — to scale, leverage synergies and efficiencies and create greater impact in the communities it serves.

HANOCON is the organization’s largest annual gathering that brings together nonprofit professionals–as well as sector allies, supporters, and advocates–to network, learn, share ideas, collaborate and partner.
