August is the time for walkingSunday 2nd Aug
This August I am participating in the Hutt St Centre "Walk A Mile Challenge" - ordinarily there is an annual walk in the CBD called "Walk A Mile In My Boots" but this year because of Covid-19, it can't be held. So it's switched to an online format - with an overall goal of 6000 miles walked; representative of the approximate population of people experiencing homelessness in Adelaide.
Hutt St Centre is a South Australian charity that assists people who are experiencing homelessness. There has also been a lot of negative campaigning around Hutt St Centre as development has sprung up around it- it's been operating on its CBD site for several decades.
A couple of years ago I was in a position to tour their facilities on Hutt St in Adelaide's CBD and they provide very extensive services to some of South Australia's most vulnerable. I was moved to tears by some of the stories I heard and the people I met there.
I am planning to walk 1 - 2 miles (1.6km - 3.2km), possibly more if time and permits.Share
