The Walk to Save Our Homes is an annual 5K fundraising walk held in Somerville. The Walk began in 2004 as a local response to the displacement of Somerville residents due to rapid gentrification. Walk funds go to the Somerville Homeless Coalition and are used to help residents at risk of homelessness with security deposits, back rent, utilities or moving costs. Walk funds help many residents, and each year the Somerville Homeless Coalition receives twice as many requests for assistance than they are able to meet. Therefore, every dollar counts and small donations are greatly appreciated. The Walk is a fun and relaxed community event with food, music and prizes. Most importantly, the funds raised help a lot of Somerville residents throughout the year. Feel free to invite friends, family and colleagues to participate and donate to this great cause.
