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:

Adelaide - Friday 11 August, 7.30am

McLaren Vale - Friday 4 August, 7.30am

If you are a school but can't make it to the Adelaide or McLaren Vale event, you could organise to Walk a Mile In My Boots at My School - click here for details.

Go the Extra Mile and make your steps count

By walking you are showing people experiencing homelessness that you care, and your registration helps cover the event costs.

By fundraising you can help provide basic essentials such as meals, showers and toilets as well access to professional services including case management and medical and health support to help a person out of homelessness.
