Interfaith Communities in Action (ICIA) will be holding a FUNdraising walk Saturday morning, August 12, 8:00 am at the Edith Kanaka'ole Stadium (350 Kalanikoa St, Hilo) to support our signature fund "Hale ka Po`e Keiki" (Homes for Children).
This fund was established in January 2022 to support local non-profit organizations helping our East Hawaii community end family homelessness. The 2023 recipient of the ICIA "Hale ka Po`e Keiki" fund is Habitat for Humanity Hawai`i Island.

Walkers are encouraged to seek out donors for their registration fee; and additional donations, such as by pledging to do a silly dance and/or wear a silly costume during the walk. Prizes will be awarded for the top three walkers who have collected the most donations. Baby strollers and wheelchairs are welcome as walkers. Feel free to decorate them!
Registration Deadline: The regular deadline for walkers to register is Friday, July 28, 2023. This ensures the walker receives a goody bag.
Late registration will be accepted until Saturday, August 12 (the day of the walk). Goody bag not guaranteed.
Route: The perimeter of the Edith Kanaka'ole Stadium interior, so there will be shelter from rain or sun. Participants will have an hour to walk multiple laps around the route, with fun music and group dance-alongs to participate in along the route. Check-in for the walk is at 7:30 am on the day of the walk.
Walkers are welcome to bring along “cheerleaders” to support them at points along the route!
At the conclusion of the walk at 9:00 am, the stadium will be open for free live entertainment. The event finishes at 10:00 am.
Sponsors: We are still accepting sponsorships for the walk. Businesses, churches, nonprofits, and/or generous individuals are all welcome to donate to help offset the costs of the event. Sponsors donating over $1000 will have their logo included on publicity materials and will be able to display publicity materials at the event and receive acknowledgment during the live entertainment. Supporters donating $500-$999 can hang a banner at the event.
