Â The CHARITY WALK is a statewide event that occurs simultaneously on Oahu, Maui, the Big Island and Kauai on the 3rd Saturday in May. In 2008, more than 9,500 walkers raised over $1.12 million and helped over 190 of our local charities. In 1974, the Hawai’i Hotel Association sponsored a charitable “Superwalk” to benefit one major charitable organization. In 1978, the Hawai’i Hotel 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. Over the years, the HHLA’s annual walk has grown to become one of the largest single-day fundraising events by a non-profit organization in the State of Hawaii. Since its inception in 1978, over $20 million has been raised, helping hundreds of local charities throughout the State.Â (click the photo to go to the Charity Walk’s official Website on Maui)
