walk a mile in my boots
There are nearly 6,000 people experiencing homelessness in South Australia every year
We think that’s too many people facing poverty and disadvantage
Each year we call on South Australians to show their support for people facing homelessness by joining us and experiencing what it is like on a cold, winter's morning to walk one mile to find something to eat, a hot shower and a friendly face.
By joining us and walking a mile in the boots of a person experiencing homelessness, you're helping make someone doing it tough realise they are not alone. Because no person who is homeless should feel like they’re walking alone.
walk a mile in my boots is held annually in August. In 2017 walk a mile in my boots will be held:
Adelaide - Friday 11 August, 7.30am
McLaren Vale - Friday 4 August, 7.30am
