The Winter Walk is an event and initiative that believes ending homelessness is within our reach. Our mission is to raise funds and awareness towards that goal, and to support organizations in Greater Boston that are working on prevention, support, and care for our homeless community.
The 2nd annual Winter Walk will be held on Sunday, February 11th, 2018. This 2 mile walk through the streets of Boston during the coldest month of the year will begin and end on Copley Plaza. Participants, housed and unhoused, will walk shoulder to shoulder and then share a meal together as we hear real stories of Boston’s homeless population.
Our homeless community are sons, husbands, mothers, brothers, wives, fathers, and friends. They could be you. Each of these individuals has a unique story – homelessness is their state of being, not their identity. All of them are our neighbors in need, and we can help them.
On February 11, 2018, over 1,000 people will come together to do just that. It will be a day of humility and celebration, of learning and sharing.
We hope you will join us on this journey.
