The Fifth Annual Winter Walk Boston

DURATION

1-2 hours

WHERE

Our two mile walk is held in Boston, MA at Copley Square. The 2021 Winter Walk is following state regulations and CDC guidelines in the hopes of hosting a socially distanced physical two-mile walk at Copley Square. The physical walk would take place on February 7th at 8:30am and a virtual streaming option would take place at 3pm. Walkers participating virtually are able to complete a two-mile walk within the first week of February including day of event. 

WHEN

February 7, 8:30am EST

WHOSE HELP IS REQUIRED

We welcome individuals, families, and groups.  

HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

The Winter Walk raises awareness and funds for ten Boston-based nonprofit organizations working to alleviate suffering and address the root causes of homelessness. We raised just under half a million dollars from our 2020 Walk.  100% of event proceeds go directly to our partner organizations.

The Walk aims to continue this success in our fifth year and to continue to grow our partnerships and impact. We need your support and hope you will join us.

DESCRIPTION

A 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 and then share a meal together as we hear real stories from Boston’s homeless population. We have large groups of volunteers every year for our event! Volunteer roles include event set up, walker registration check in, route support, why I walk station, handing out breakfast and event tear down. 


ITEMS NEEDED

Warm clothes.


SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

Anyone under 18 will need to be accompanied by an adult guardian or school/program chaperone who has been given permission to oversee youth.
