Charity Walk Hawaii 2017
BE APART OF THE MOVEMENT – A statewide event taking place on May 20, 2017 attracting thousands of supporters statewide walking to help our local Ohanas in need. What started as a community effort to help a local charity raise money by having the public participate in a walkathon called “Superwalk” in 1974, has since grown into supporting hundreds of charities and raising over 28 million in donations. Donations goto local charities that are making Hawaii a better place!
Support Project Hawaii Inc.
We are very proud supporters of Project Hawaii Inc. and their mission of impacting the homeless keiki population by breaking their cycle of poverty. Donations raised through annual fundraisers and charity walks go toward funding camps, rehabilitative programs, and resources that homeless keikis don’t have easy access to.
