Join our HUGS team for this year's 41st Annual Visitor Industry Charity Walk, the only walk where you might actually gain weight! The fun, 5-mile walk begins at Magic Island at Ala Moana Beach Park, continues through Waikiki, with a switchback on Kalakaua Avenue near Kapahulu Avenue, down Lewers Street's Beachwalk and ends back at Ala Moana Beach Park’s Magic Island. Along the way, various checkpoints will feature a variety of delicious food, beverages and entertainment, sponsored by lodging properties and allied members. At the end of the walk, participants will be treated to a plate lunch and music.

Minimum donation is $40 for adults and $25 for children under 18. If you are walking and don’t alreadyhave a HUGS T-shirt, be sure to register by April 18 and select your shirt size to guarantee a T-shirt. If you can’t walk but would still like to participate at the walk, volunteer course marshals are needed. HUGS will be submitting a grant application for our SibCamp, so the more walkers and volunteers we have, the more money we'll receive.
Since 1978, this walk, sponsored by the Hawaii Lodging & Tourism Association and the Hawaii Hotel Industry Foundation, has raised more than $34.5 million statewide for more than a thousand local nonprofits including HUGS.
