Help End Homelessness One Step at a Time
The Depaul USA Walkabout is a 5k run/ 2k walk to raise funds for Depaul USA and help end homelessness one step at a time. Join us and change the lives of Philadelphians experiencing homelessness!
Proceeds from this annual event will be utilized to help residents of Depaul House find employment and transition from homelessness into stable housing. Learn more about Depaul USA atwww.DepaulUSA.org.
