Winter Walk to End Homelessness

Join us in participating in Boston's first annual Winter Walk!  The Winter Walk is an event to help Boston’s homeless community and raise awareness of what they experience in the winter. All proceeds will benefit partner organizations who are doing great things for this community. 

On the morning of February 12, 2017, one thousand Bostonians will come together in Copley Square for a two-mile walk up through the Common and back, and then stay to share breakfast and hear from these organizations and the homeless community.
