THE CHARITY WALK
Gives everyone a chance to raise money for Hawaii’s charities. Walk with the Hawai‘i Lodging & Tourism Association and their allied members to help build a better, healthier Hawaii, for all of us.
WHO MAY WALK?
The Hawai‘i Lodging & Tourism Association invites everyone of every age to walk. Those under 12 years old must be accompanied by an adult and walkers under the age of 18 must have this application signed by a parent or guardian. All walkers should have minimum donations regardless of age (see front of form). Please note that ALL pets are NOT allowed on the Charity Walk.
WHAT IS THE CHARITY WALK?
In 1974 the Hawai‘i Lodging & Tourism Association sponsored a charitable “Superwalk” to benefit one major charitable organization. In 1979, the Hawai‘i Lodging & Tourism Association members voted to extend the reach of support offered by the Walk’s fund-raising capability.
The Visitor Industry CHARITY WALK is the result of this decision. All Hawaii non-profit charities are eligible to benefit. Walkers are treated to food, drink and fun at checkpoints along the walk route. All checkpoints are operated and supplied with refreshments and helpers by Hawaii hotels and allied organizations. Entertainment may also be provided at many checkpoints and at the end of the walk.
