Join HUGS in the Oahu Charity Walk 2020!

 

Please join our HUGS team in this year’s Oahu Charity Walk. HUGS (Help, Understanding & Group Support) strengthens Hawaii’s families by improving their quality of life as they face the emotional and financial hardships of caring for a seriously ill child, from birth to 21 years old.

By partnering with HUGS, you’re bringing joy and hope to Hawaii’s seriously ill children and their families and ensuring they don’t have to go through their journey alone.

Through an array of long-term support programs, HUGS helps each member of the family along their challenging journey of serious childhood illness, from diagnosis through treatment and beyond. Programs include monthly family events, monthly respite, peer support groups for Moms and for Dads, sibling support that includes a three-day camp just for siblings, weekly hospital outreach, and case management services that help connect families to community resources. Financial assistance is also offered, including one-time stipends to Neighbor Island families whose child needs treatment here in Honolulu, food baskets, funeral assistance, and emergency airfare when a child needs life-saving treatment on the Mainland. Because of you and others like you in the community, all services are available to families at no charge.


The Oahu Charity Walk will be held on Saturday, May 16th, 2020 at 7am at Ala Moana Beach Park.

We can't wait to see you there! 

About The Charity Walk
The Charity Walk, founded in 1974 and expanded statewide in 1978, is now Hawai‘i’s largest single-day fundraising event by a non-profit organization. Since its inception, more than $32 million has been raised to support hundreds of local charities throughout the state. Spearheaded by the Hawaii Lodging & Tourism Association and its non-profit arm Hawaii Hotel Industry Foundation, the Charity Walk is traditionally held every May on Hawai‘i, Kaua‘i, Lana‘i, Maui, Moloka‘i, and O‘ahu. Money raised on an island or county stays there. The public is invited to participate in this event featuring a morning of great food, fun, fabulous entertainment, and a little exercise to help island charities.
