Since 2008, South Australians have come together during National Homelessness Week in August to take part in Walk a Mile in My Boots to show their support for those experiencing homelessness. Last year, our community raised a total of $278,555 for Hutt St Centre to continue providing life changing, essential wellbeing and professional services to help rebuild lives.
In 2019, 13,847 people walked a mile with us across Adelaide, McLaren Vale and At My School events in a tremendous show of support for Hutt St Centre, and people experiencing disadvantage.
2020 has been a rough year for all of us, but especially for those living on our streets. With more than 6,000 people experiencing homelessness in South Australia, we need your help more than ever.
While COVID-19 will impact our ability to gather as a large group for the Walk a Mile in My Boots event in Adelaide… the good news is we can still walk a mile (or more!) to support people experiencing homelessness.
So this year, Walk a Mile in My Boots presents…
In 2020, we aim to collectively walk 6,000 miles for the 6,000 people experiencing homelessness in South Australia on Friday August 7. The Walk a Mile Challenge provides South Australian’s with the opportunity to step out and ensure Hutt St Centre remains a place where people can change their lives forever.
So, grab your boots and walk a mile or more in your neighbourhood this August and help end homelessness.
