Over One Thousand Volunteers Show for Second Annual Winter Walk for the Homeless
The Second Annual Winter Walk began at nine in the morning in The Copley Square Plaza on Sunday, Feb. 11. Founded by Kayak co-founder and CEO of Lola Travel, Paul English. A total of $100,000 was raised last year at the very first Winter Walk, a two mile excursion that begins and ends in Copley.
On the cold and rainy morning, more than one thousand walkers from all over New England registered and donated to show their support. Over seven hundred attended and walked together. So-called “virtual walkers” also showed their support by donating if they were unable to attend the event.
All funds raised by this event directly support local Boston organizations that provide crucial care and support for the homeless community. After walking two miles, attendants enjoyed live music and warm meals donated by local charities and groups.
