I have pledged to choose Love over Hate to show people experiencing homelessness that they are not alone.

Support my 28km Long Walk Home to Help People in Crisis

Over the week of Saturday 2 to Friday 8 October 2021, I am walking 28km in the shoes of a person living on our streets in the Long Walk Home.

Every week, a person sleeping rough on our streets has to walk 28km to find shelter or a place to sleep.

Please sponsor my challenge to support the most vulnerable people in our community.

Every step I take and every dollar you help us raise will deliver love, support and assistance to those in crisis. 

My name is Tanya and I am a full time security officer. At work I walk an average of 60KM on foot a week and know how it feels. I get only a 30 minute break at work with my bosses keeping an eye on me making sure I don't get to 31 minutes on my break. After that they will watch me in the camera to make sure I keep on walking around the building and don't stop to find shelter or a place to sleep. I hope the least I can get out of this is that I can help out a homeless person while I do my daily walking at work. 

So far I helped deliver:


care packs


home-cooked meals


days crisis accommodation

…to people sleeping rough on our streets or in isolation at home.
