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!

Funds will not be granted for capital fund drives, purchase of tangible real property or personal property,  or interest or reduction of deficits or loans.

"What’s most meaningful about the Charity Walk is that it’s the visitor industry’s way of showing its profound appreciation for the community by way of its fiscal contribution. We continue to fundraise and, thanks to the unparalleled support of our hospitality industry, and the generosity of many HLTA members, are able to provide assistance to hundreds of local nonprofits across our islands."
- Mufi Hannemann, HLTA President and CEO
