Live Kōkua Community Walk
On Saturday, June 28, 2014, Bank of Hawaii held its 8th annual Community Walk at the Honolulu Zoo, to benefit four nonprofit organizations that support and enhance the lives of Hawaii’s families. Employees selected the walk’s beneficiaries through online voting, and then raised a total of $112,280 in donations for American Diabetes Association-Hawaii Chapter, Big Brothers Big Sisters Hawaii, Helping Hands Hawaii and Make-A-Wish Hawaii.
Nearly 2,000 bank employees and their families showed up to enjoy the fun, which included the bank’s inaugural "Bankoh Best Slipper Forward Design Contest," and family-fun games, including a slipper relay race, while showing their support for our community.
Bank of Hawaii started the annual Community Walk to support local nonprofit organizations who lacked the resources to hold a walk of their own. The Live Kōkua Community Walk is just another way in which Bank of Hawaii demonstrates its longstanding commitment to make a positive impact in the communities where we live, work and raise our families.
Since the inception of the Bank of Hawaii Community Walk in 2007, employees have raised more than $930,000 to help our communities.
