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.
Meet at Victoria Park/Pakapakanthi (Wakefield Road entrance) and walk a mile along Wakefield Street and Hutt Street, past the Hutt Street Centre, to the South Parklands at Hutt Road where you'll be welcomed with a traditional Hutt St Centre BBQ breakfast.
