Sarah's Circle's key fundraising event is our annual Winter Walk: a Mile in Her Shoes. This event is an important opportunity to better understand homelessness through the eyes of those who struggle with it first-hand. Participants walk together on a one-mile route through the Uptown neighborhood while listening to stories of women who have rebuilt their lives with Sarah's Circle's help.
The 25th annual Winter Walk: a Mile in Her Shoes raised over $88,000 in support of women who are homeless or at risk of homelessness! The success of this event relies on people like you, our steadfast supporters, to participate in our online peer-to-peer fundraising campaign!
The 26th annual Winter Walk: a Mile in Her Shoes will take place in February 2018.
