Join Walk a Mile in My Boots with your school

Bring your school community together for a great cause and empower your students to create real impact. It's an unforgettable school experience – and you'll change the lives of people in South Australia Australians facing homelessness. 

Why take part

Homelessness can and does happen to anyone. There are over 7,000 people in South Australia experiencing homelessness.

By joining the Walk a Mile in My Boots challenge you’re helping make sure that people doing it tough can come to Hutt St Centre for free healthy meals, hot showers, medical check-ups, and so much more.

Your school’s kindness and commitment to fundraising will help ensure that Hutt St Centre is here for whenever people need us. Let’s lace up our boots and get started!

Walk a Mile in My Boots challenge week is officially from 5 to 11 August, with The Final Mile taking place on Friday 9 August. But you can fundraise and hold your own Walk a Mile in My Boots events anytime in Term 3.
