August 30 - September 12, 2021
Though 2021 marks the first time that O‘ahu’s Visitor Industry Charity Walk will be hosted in a virtual format, there is nothing that can get between us and our goal of providing support to more than a hundred charities, nonprofits, and other various organizations that count on this event to help them achieve their missions. In 2019, we raised more than $500,00 that was eventually distributed across the island to organizations dealing with homelessness, youth, social welfare, mental and physical health, and our environment amongst a myriad of other issues. This year’s walk promises fun-filled festivities and virtual competitions as we continue to fundraise for a host of worthy causes!
