In Their Shoes: 10 Mile Challenge

Date and Time for this Past Event


visit website


Did you know that, on average, people experiencing homelessness walk ten miles per day? To access food, clothing, shelter, and other crucial resources, they often have to visit many different places. Getting access to transportation can be expensive so most of our guests travel on foot. You can support our guests by participating in our third annual In Their Shoes: 10 Mile Challenge on March 19, 2023!

What is the 10 Mile Challenge

The third Annual In Their Shoes: 10 Mile Challenge is a four week fundraising event that benefits the Central Outreach and Advocacy Center (COAC). For the challenge, participants of all ages, stages and skill levels commit to walking a total of 10 miles at their own pace while reflecting on the distance people experiencing homelessness walk each day. 

Celebrate with us on March 19th

This year’s event will kick off on February 15th and conclude on March 19th, 2023 when all participants are invited to walk the last mile together at COAC’s headquarters in downtown Atlanta, followed by a celebration.
