K9 Kokua was formed when a group of dog lovers began feeding and helping care for Opu, a dog belonging to a houseless member of the community. Volunteers soon became aware of a growing need for basic pet care for animals belonging to the houseless population in Waianae and throughout Hawaii. Over time, the group has formed bonds with many more dogs and their owners, helping provide everything from pet food and flea shampoo to spay or neuter procedures and microchipping services. Along with giving these dogs emergency veterinary care and food, volunteers provide love and affection, helping the dogs maintain as normal a life as possible in their difficult circumstances.

Frank Uehara watched as his neighbor, who had just returned from Japan, showed him a new piece of gear—an airsoft gun powered by springs and gas. Frank was intrigued as he held the pellet gun, and began to practice the sport. But as airsoft grew over the next 30 years and Frank continued to pursue it, he came to realize that many airsoft fields were unwieldy for first-time players and saw his chance to change that. At Action Pursuit Hawaii's outdoor field, he provides an easy introduction for first-time airsoft players while also welcoming competitors of all skill levels into challenging play. The facility’s safety officials remain on hand to oversee players who blast pellets at competitors and exchange witty Shakespearean taunts from behind the field’s giant tilted plastic columns and plywood barricades.
