Hundreds walk for charities in South Kohala
The 36th annual Visitor Industry Charity Walk attracted hundreds to South Kohala on Saturday to raise funds for local charities.
The event, sponsored by the Hawaii Lodging & Tourism Association at the Mauna Lani Resort, featured both runners and walkers who completed a 3.5-mile course to raise funds for hundreds of local charities. Funds raised during the Big Island event stay on the island. Registration begins at 5:45 a.m. Runners start off at 6:45 a.m. and walkers at 7 a.m. for the 3.5 mile course.
