We have made the difficult decision not to hold Walk Home again this June as there was too much uncertainty to plan and hold this year’s Walk. Due to the pandemic, we did not hold Walk Home events in 2020 and 2021.

RTN’s signature fundraiser for homeless teens and families — RTN Walk Home 5K Walk — usually takes place the second Sunday in June, with three events held simultaneously in three locations with RTN branches: Waltham Common, Danvers Rail Trail and Dorchester Park.

Walk Home is a true Team RTN effort, bringing together RTN members and staff, along with community residents, local and state dignitaries and politicians, and business sponsors.

We are proud that since 2011, Walk Home has raised and donated more than $200,000 to help homeless teens and families in Danvers, Dorchester and Waltham, and support the work of the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless.

Please mark your calendars for our scheduled Walk Home event next year – Sunday, June 11, 2023.

Funds were 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). Donations are tax deductible.

Each year, Walk Home brings together RTN members and staff, along with community residents, local and state dignitaries and politicians and business sponsors at the three simultaneous Walk locations.

We are proud that since 2011, Walk Home has raised more than $180,000. Walk Home funds help support MCH’s A Bed for Every Child initiative, along with programs that provide children with winter coats, hats and mittens along with new beds and bedding, and help transition hundreds of families from homelessness to housing.

This has made it possible for 800 children growing up in poverty to have a bed of their own.

Walk Home 2018 raised $21,000 for MCH. From these funds, $2,500 was donated to RTN’s partner, Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program to support their important work in providing access to health care for homeless individuals.

Tuck BearTuck, the official mascot of A Bed for Every Child, is a symbol of the importance of a good night’s sleep in a child’s life and the safety and innocence of being tucked in at night.

Every child is worthy of this ritual, which is why our Walk Home annual fundraiser is so important.
