August 30 - September 12, 2021
Walk with us virtually, from August 30 - September 12 and support Hawaiʻi's local non-profits! Whether you are a competitive athlete, a workout enthusiast, or a leisure walker, we will have fun “virtual” activities that will fit all needs. Since 1979, Hawaiʻi Island has raised more than $5.3 million to support hundreds of diverse non-profit organizations on the island. The public is always invited to participate in this annual event which typically features a morning of delicious food, fun, fabulous entertainment, and a little exercise to help charities within our community. This year’s event will be different from our previous Charity Walks, but we are committed to providing a great experience that will benefit those in need, and we thank you in advance for your support of our efforts.
