WAILUKU, MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) - Maui businesses, nonprofits and residents raised over $1.4 million for the community at the annual Visitor Industry Charity Walk in Wailuku.
Over 3,500 charity walkers gathered at the War Memorial Soccer field on Maui, as well as several other charity walk sites in Molokai and Lanai to raise for Maui County communities.
Charity walkers raised a grand total of $1,410,967 — which is over $250,000 more than what was raised last year.
"The Maui community has once again shown their generosity, volunteerism and compassion in raising funds for the Charity Walk on Maui," said Lisa Paulson, executive director of the Maui Hotel & Lodging Association.
"This community is so strong and committed to caring for everyone - our island continues to raise more funds per capita than any other island in Hawaii."
