Virtual Walk for Hope
ANNUAL EVENT – Saturday, June 27 at 2 PM
The Walk Is Going Virtual
We’re excited to announce this year’s Walk for Hope is going virtual which means anyone, anywhere can participate by walking in their own neighborhoods and connecting with our caring community via social media posts.
Join us on Saturday, June 27 at 2 PM as we take steps individually to support our neighbors in need during these trying times of social distancing. One thing we can all do to maintain our mental and physical health is EXERCISE!
Last year’s Walk for Hope raised awareness and more than $14,000 for people struggling to stay housed. Help us surpass that total by participating in this year’s walk. You can make every step count for a great cause!
Ways to Get Involved
You can sign up as an individual or create/join a team.
Invite your friends and family to join you — no matter where they are. The walk is the perfect way to remain connected to your loved ones during this time. They can also sponsor your efforts by donating to your fundraising page. Click here for an info sheet which has helpful tips on how to make the most of your Walk for Hope experience.
Send friends and family an email letting them know you’ll be walking. Call out your fundraising cavalry. Share photos of your favorite places to walk; post your progress on social media; and connect virtually with people who share your concern for our community.
Between now and June 27, make sure to take photos of you walking and videos of why you’re walking and tag us on social media (@haconcapecod) or send them to Event Coordinator Deanna Bussiere at email@example.com.
By walking, you will be taking important steps to ensuring our neighbors on Cape Cod and the Islands have access to safe, stable housing. You can make a difference!
Maximize your fundraising impact! Ask your friends and family to make a pledge towards your walk. Ask them to donate per mile or kilometer (make it a 1-mile, 5K or 10K walk — you decide). They can also donate a flat amount for your effort. This year, we have great prizes for the Top Fundraising Team and the Top Fundraising Individual!
Don’t want to walk, but still want to participate? No problem! Simply create a fundraising page and ask people to donate.
Mailing a check? Please make checks payable to Housing Assistance with Walk for Hope on the memo line and send to 460 West Main Street, Hyannis, MA 02601.
Where to Walk
Anywhere you like! Training can be completed in your yard, around your neighborhood, on your treadmill, on your favorite beach, on trails in your town — you decide! Here’s the best part: You can sign up and get all your family and friends anywhere in the world to sign up too. Together, with every step you take, you will be making a difference in the lives of others!

2019 Walk for Hope
During last year’s Falmouth Walk, Rabbi Elias Lieberman of the Falmouth Jewish Congregation spoke to over two dozen walkers about the importance of their efforts, telling them, “We believe on some fundamental level that we have the ability to bring about the kind of change that Housing Assistance Corporation works so hard to bring about.”
Thank you to all who walked last year to help bring about positive change on Cape Cod!
