40th Annual Visitor Industry Charity Walk

The tradition of giving was on display at Waikoloa Beach Resort on Saturday morning, as hundreds took to the streets for the 40th annual Visitor Industry Charity Walk.

The state’s largest charity event was staged by the Hawaii Lodging and Tourism Association and welcomed all nonprofits throughout Hawaii. The Charity Walk has raised more than $32 million since 1978.

The Big Island’s portion of the event started and ended at Queens’ MarketPlace in Waikoloa, where participants were treated to live entertainment and a sprawling culinary spread after finishing the 3.7-mile jaunt by whatever mode of transportation suited them best.
