Family Promise Metrowest (FPM), a local nonprofit organization dedicated to helping homeless families, is set to kick off its 9th annual Walk to End Homelessness event on Saturday, April 7th, 2018 at the Natick Community-Senior Center.
Join 105.7 WROR FM and walkers of all ages for music, raffle prizes, food trucks, and a 5K walk around the community. Bring your kids, dogs, and friends to help raise awareness and end the cycle of homelessness in the greater Boston area.
Last year, 1,000 people from 98 zip codes in Massachusetts participated in the event and helped raise over $150,000. Funds raised are used to provide shelter, meals, and professional case management to homeless families. In December 2017, FPM also launched a LIFE program to support families on the brink of homelessness with case management and debt assistance.
FPM’s Walk to End Homelessness registration and check in begins at 8:00AM on Saturday, April 7th, rain or shine, at 117 East Central Street in Natick. The first 400 registered walkers will receive a t-shirt. Walkers raising over $100 will be entered in a raffle for prizes.
Registration is open now. To register and fundraise for the walk, go here.
