Step out of your comfort zone
2016 heralds the eighth year of Hutt St Centre's annual event: Walk A Mile In My Boots. Held in the first full week of August, Walk A Mile In My Boots raises public awareness of homelessness as part of National Homelessness Prevention Week (01/08/2016-07/08/2016).

Hutt St Centre is a frontline agency for homeless and vulnerable people – recent reports have found that an estimated 6,000 people in South Australia are currently experiencing homelessness. This year's event is aiming to recruit 6,000 registered participants to Walk A Mile In My Boots 'because no person who is homeless should feel like they're walking alone'.

Walk A Mile In My Boots aims to provide registered participants with a glimpse of what it's like for some people facing homelessness who are constantly walking a mile or more - in rain, hail or shine 'to find something to eat, a hot shower and a friendly face'.

This year, Hutt St Centre will host two Walk A Mile In My Boots events in two different locations.

Walk A Mile In My Boots – McLaren Vale event will be held on Friday 29/07/2016 at 7.30am.

Meet at Oxenberry Farm (out the back) and walk along the Coast to Vines Rail Trail, to Hardys Tintara where you will be welcomed with a traditional Hutt St Centre BBQ breakfast.

Your Comment
The Coast to Vines Rail Trail is a lovely walk. Hardly a hardship at all to support homeless people.
