Visitor Industry Charity Walk, Saturday May 18, 2019
If you plan to participate, please complete and submit form to Willard or Corinne Chang by Friday, May 3rd. Again, this is a fun 5.25-mile walk that starts at Ala Moana Beach Park, continues through Waikiki and ends up back at Ala Moana Beach Park. There are lots of snacks, goodies and entertainment along the way. There is also a free plate lunch at the end.
The entry fee is covered by the Troop, for our Scouts and Scout’s immediate family members. But you are welcome and encouraged to bring other family and friends! For them, the fee is $25 for walkers up to 18 years old, and $40 for adults. Forms are available at the Scout Hut.
Our Troop will meet on the morning of the walk at 6:15 AM at the IBM building parking lot across from the park. Address: 1240 Ala Moana Blvd. Parking lot is on the Auahi Street side of the building. All scouts must wear Class B Shirts and covered shoes. Scouts must walk with a buddy, and siblings and friends should walk with their families. You may want to bring a bag for the goodies from the checkpoints, along the way. Hats and sunscreen are recommended. Stamp cards will be given to you at the beginning of the walk, and completed stamp cards can be turned in at the end of the walk for a plate lunch.
The finish will be at McCoy Pavilion Keyhole area in Ala Moana Park. We will finish at about 10:30 AM, but actual end times depend on the pace of the individual walkers. Please check out with an ASM before leaving. Hope to see you there!
Parents: We are also in need of Course Marshals. Our troop traditionally provides 5-7 course marshals each year. It’s an easy job and it’s fun to see all the enthused walkers pass by, and most of all, the Charity Walk really needs and appreciates the support. Please let Corinne Chang know, if you can volunteer to be a marshal. Thank you!
