Annual Charity Walk
Runners Start 6:45 am, Walkers 7:00 am
The public is invited to participate in the Visitor Industry Charity Walk and preserve this tradition of sharing and kokua. You don’t have to be an employee of a lodging property, a member of the Hawai‘i Lodging & Tourism Association, or part of the visitor industry to participate. Anyone can! In fact, invite your family, friends, neighbors, clients, classmates, club members, and anyone who’s interested to join us for a morning of food, fun, fabulous local entertainment, and a little exercise to help Hawaii’s local charities. And with all the great food and fun, the Charity Walk is the only one in Hawaii where you can actually gain weight by raising money for a great cause.
Visitors and residents invited!
