Event and fundraising details at a glance?

The Walk for Hope will be celebrated virtually on Saturday, June 26th! Due to concerns surrounding COVID-19, participants are invited to support this year's Walk virtually from their own routes all while fundraising to support our local community. You can walk in the weeks and days leading up to the event as well as the event day itself. Participants can walk wherever you want — on a treadmill, around your neighborhood, along the beach, on a bike path, or in a park. Last year, we had people walking and fundraising throughout Cape Cod and as far away as New Hampshire and Arizona.

Walk and fundraise as an individual or on a team! Connect with friends, family and colleagues who share your passion for giving back and helping others by starting a team or joining one. Together, you’ll create more awareness to the need for more safe, stable housing in our region while showing what it truly means to be a community.
