Alaska Visitor Industry Charity Walks
The visitor industry is Alaska's third largest industry, attracting over 2 million visitors annually and generating over 4 billion in visitor spending, providing 47,000 Alaska jobs. Travel businesses large and small are intimately involved in their communities, supporting local charities with financial contributions, auction items, door prizes, volunteers, and more.
The Visitor Industry Charity Walk (VICW) celebrates this commitment to giving through a fun, festive community event that raises money for non-profit agencies throughout the state of Alaska. Since the first walk in 2000, over one million dollars have been distributed to Alaskan charities.
The ATIA Team and family members gathered in Downtown Anchorage for the 2017 VICW.
