Ohana: The Official Fish of THON

Have you seen a school of fish gliding through the BJC? They are members of Ohana, an independent THON organization founded in 2008. For three years, they’ve been participating in the fight to find a cure.

“Ohana means family in Hawaii,” said Ohana’s Outreach Chair Jamieson Cox. If you think that quote sounds familiar, you may just be a Disney fan. According to Ohana’s website, the phrase is most commonly attributed to Disney’s Lilo and Stitch. In the movie and here at the BJC, “Ohana means family, and family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten.”

Other than being one of the most successful independent THON organizations, Ohana is also known for their wardrobe. As member Rolanda Grant models in the photograph, they wear bright yellow and blue clown fish hats with an orange t-shirt. They are one of the easiest group to spot in the arena. Check out the Ohana website for more information.

As THON continues, remember that we’re all a family working together – “Ohana.”
