In February 2017 we launched Boston's inaugural Winter Walk and made strides to end homelessness.
On a frigid New England day, nearly 1000 people participated in a 2-mile march through Boston to end homelessness. The Winter Walk raises awareness and funds for some of Boston's non-profit organizations working to alleviate suffering and address the root causes that give rise to homelessness.
After launching in the fall of 2017, and with only a short time to prepare for the winter ahead, we gathered a community of civic minded citizens to come together for this important initiative. Shoulder to shoulder, we came together to walk, share a meal, and hear real stories of challenge, dignity, and hope from our homeless community.
The Winter Walk raised $100,000 in its first year from those who walked and donated. 100% of event proceeds went directly to partner organizations and critical programs serving our homeless community.
The Walk aims to more than double that success in our second year. For our February 11, 2018 walk, we aim to raise $250,000 and continue to grow our partnerships and impact. We need you as partner in this, and hope you will join us on the journey ahead.
