Kauai United Way will hold its annual Walk-A-Thon on Saturday, October 29 at Kukui Grove Center Stage. This is an excellent opportunity for any Kauai non-profit group to raise money for their own organization. Proceeds are split evenly between the Kauai non-profit group of each walker’s choice and Kauai United Way’s 30 Participating Agencies. Nearly 100 Kauai non-profits -- including sports teams, church groups, 4-H Clubs, hula halaus, canoe clubs – earned thousands of dollars for themselves in last year’s walk.
This is Kauai’s easiest fundraiser. Logistics are provided by the Kapaa High School Interact Club and administration by Kauai United Way. All you have to do is get pledges and walk! You can even come in your favorite Halloween Costume since it takes place on Halloween day!!!
Kauai United Way is an independent organization, devoted to serving our whole community since 1946 by supporting hundreds of social service programs through 30 Participating Agencies. Money raised on Kauai stays on Kauai. The annual Walk-A-Thon is a way to raise additional funds for these agencies while simultaneously providing a means for many smaller non-profit groups on our island to raise money for their own causes without going to great effort. The Walk itself is symbolic and you do not need to be able to get to Lihue and walk to participate.
Pledge Forms are available at the Kauai United Way Office which is located at 4374 Kukui Grove St., Ste. 201, Lihue – same building as Hawaii Care and Cleaning and Nancy Budd’s offices.
