Walk with HUGS in the Annual Charity Walk

  • Magic Island at Ala Moana Beach Park Honolulu, HI 96814 (map)

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. 

Click on or text “Oahu130” to 71777 to support Hawaii's seriously ill children and their families. 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.
