Only Walk in Hawaii Where You Can Gain Weight
The annual Visitor Industry Charity Walk, founded in 1978, is Hawaii’s largest single-day fundraising event by a non-profit organization. Since its inception, more than $32 million has been raised to support hundreds of local charities throughout the state. The Charity Walk is traditionally held every May on the islands of Hawaii, Kauai, Lanai, Maui, Molokai, and Oahu. The monies raised on that island/county stay on that island/county.
The Hawai'i Lodging & Tourism Association partners with the Hawai'i State Department of Education, and the Honolulu Star-Advertiser to award a scholarship to one senior from every DOE public high school who exemplifies values of a “citizen-scholar” at a recognition luncheon.
