Did you know in an average week, a person sleeping rough walks a distance of 28km looking for a place to sleep?
Tonight as you head home, over 116,000 people in Australia won't have a place to call home. Many will be wandering through our cities and parks, desperate for a safe space and shelter to sleep.
On Friday, 29 November 2019, join us as we walk from Parramatta to Kings Cross, in honour of people experiencing homelessness.
Long Walk Home is free to register as a team or individual, and Wayside Chapel is challenging each participant to match their commitment of providing support to the people who need it most by aiming for a fundraising goal of at least $750.
Walk in the shoes of someone sleeping rough as you raise awareness, and much-needed funds, for Wayside Chapel so that they can continue providing support to people who need it most.
Teams or individuals will take the 28km guided journey from Parramatta Park to Kings Cross starting at 5pm and walking into the night.
Under a banner of ‘love over hate,’ Wayside Chapel has been providing care and support for people on and around the streets of Sydney since 1964.
Walk with us on the Long Walk Home, and do the distance so that other people don’t have to every night.
Long Walk Home is proudly sponsored by NRMA Insurance and PwC Australia. Proudly supported by the Wentworth Courier, Inner West Courier, Northern District Times and Parramatta Advertiser.
