Charity Walk 2023, Maui

May 06, 2023

44th Annual Visitor Industry Charity Walk, Maui

  • War Memorial Sports Complex, Halia Nakoa Street, Wailuku


The Visitor Industry Charity Walk is one of the hospitality industry’s way of giving back to our communities. It is one of the largest single-day fundraising events in Hawaii with walks on Kaua’i, Oahu, Hawaii Island, and of course Maui Nui. Together the state raised just over $2 million in 2022. Maui County alone contributed to that, and raised $1,063,027 benefiting more than 50 Maui County non-profit agencies!

Since Maui Hotel & Lodging Association started hosting the Charity Walk in 1980, we have raised a cumulative total of $16.5 million in Maui County. And most importantly all of the money raised here, stays in Maui County, benefiting our residents.


Who can participate? ANYBODY! You do not have to be a hotel employee, or a member of MHLA, or part of the visitor industry to participate. Invite your family, friends, neighbors, co workers, clients, schools, clubs, visitors and guests. Team registration will open in February 2023.
