Walk for a cause

When does a walk for a cause count as service hours? When does it count as a hike?

Scoutmasters approve service hours that are part of rank requirements. Accordingly, Scoutmasters can set his or her own policy.

Requirements that are part of a merit badge are approved by the Merit Badge Counselor (MBC). So I would recommend that a Scout talk to the MBC to see if this could count as service hours or hiking miles.
