Maui Charity Walk

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 $27 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.
We invite YOU to participate in the Visitor Industry Charity Walk on behalf of East Maui Watershed Partnership and preserve this tradition of sharing and kokua. You don’t have to be an employee of a lodging property, a member of the Hawai‘i Lodging & Tourism Association, or part of the visitor industry to participate. Anyone can! In fact, invite your family, friends, neighbors, clients, classmates, club members, and anyone who’s interested to join us for a morning of food, fun, fabulous local entertainment, and a little exercise to help Hawaii’s local charities. And with all the great food and fun, the Charity Walk is the only one in Hawaii where you can actually gain weight by raising money for a great cause.


The walk is a 5K/3.1 miles from War Memorial Soccer Field
