Long Walk Home is a 28km fundraising walk from Parramatta to Kings Cross, raising money to support Wayside Chapel and people experiencing homelessness.
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 won’t have a place to call home. Some will be wandering through the city, looking for a place to rest their head for the night, desperate for a safe space or shelter. A park bench is sometimes the only option.
Take steps to help people experiencing homelessness with Long Walk Home.Register Now Long Walk Home is proudly supported by NRMA Insurance.
