•The Winter Walk is an annual event and initiative that believes ending homelessness is within our reach. The mission is to raise funds and awareness towards that goal, and to support organizations in Greater Boston that are working on prevention, support, and care for our homeless community. The 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 shoulder to shoulder and then share a meal together as we hear real stories of Boston’s homeless population. All of these individuals are our neighbors in need, and we can help.
