About Walk Home 2018

Did you know there are an estimated 42,000 children experiencing homelessness in Massachusetts this year? Homelessness is a family issue and is on the rise. You can help.

The 8th annual Walk Home 5K Benefit Walk for the Homeless was held on Sunday, June 10, 2018 at 10 am at three locations—Danvers Rail Trail, Dorchester Park and Waltham Common.

Walk Home is sponsored by RTN Federal Credit Union and RTN GoodWorks Foundation. Funds raised help homeless teens and families. Donations may be tax-deductible. Since 2011, Walk Home has raised more than $160,000.

Walk Home—our signature fundraising event—brings together RTN members and staff, community residents, business sponsors and local and state dignitaries and elected officials to work towards a common goal.

Walk Home funds are collected by RTN GoodWorks Foundation and donated to help homeless teens and families in Danvers, Dorchester and Waltham, and support the work of Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless (MCH). Students who participate in Walk Home may receive community service credit.
