ABOUT: Put on your walking shoes or your best pair of rubbah slippahs and join thousands of others for the Annual Charity Walk, one of Hawaii's largest fundraisers benefitting more than 200 local non-profit organizations across the Hawaiian Islands. Enjoy a leisurely stroll with family, friends, and colleagues as you enjoy ono food and live entertainment while raising money for great causes.

The Charity Walk is a statewide event in May held by the Hawaii Lodging & Tourism Association (HLTA), the Hawaii Hotel Industry Foundation (HHIF), and Hawaii's hospitality industry to raise funds for Hawaii's local charities! It's the only walk in the state where you can actually gain weight by walking, as every checkpoint is loaded with ono grinds and goodies.


The CHARITY WALK is a statewide event that occurs on Hawai`i Island, Kauai, Lanai, Maui, Molokai and Oahu in May.

In 1978, the Hawai`i Lodging & Tourism Association members voted to extend the reach of support offered by the Walk's fundraising capability. The Visitor Industry CHARITY WALK is the result of this decision. Since its inception in 1978, over $32 million has been raised and helped hundreds of local charities throughout the State.
