Nolan to lead 2014 charity walk effort

Angela Nolan is the 2014 Maui County Visitor Industry Charity Walk chairperson, the Maui Hotel & Lodging Association said.

She is general manager at the Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas and will oversee the Charity Walk held on Maui, Molokai and Lanai.

“As the 2014 charity walk chairperson, I am honored to represent the residents of Maui County. I have been blessed to call Maui my home since 1997 and fell in love with the island, its people and the culture well before then. To lead the charge for such an incredible cause is truly a privilege,” said Nolan.

In 2013, Maui County walkers alone raised $835,557, 85 percent more than was raised by Oahu, with 59 percent fewer walkers, according to a news release.

Statewide Charity Walk Chairperson Kelly Hoen (general manager for the Royal Hawaiian Hotel), has decided that it’s time for some friendly competition among the islands and has announced the 1st annual Mayor’s Challenge, according to the release. The county with the largest year-over-year percentage growth will win.

This year’s Visitor Industry Charity Walk will take place May 3 on Molokai and Lanai and May 10 on Maui. Nonprofit grant applications can be found at Additional information can be received by emailing
