Walk for the Women

For the past 20 years we have met in downtown Burien to take a walk together. We warm up, lace up, and hold up our signs. We walk in solidarity – we Walk for the Women.

I want nothing more than to gather, greet, and walk with each of you but we need everyone to be safe. I know we will miss the camaraderie of coming together but we still have the mission of helping homeless women find home, health and hope to fulfill.

We invite you to choose YOUR MOVE, YOUR WAY and YOUR DAY!

Here’s how it works:


Register for the event then decide how you want to move –  walk, run, bike, hike.

If you are not able to move, your move can simply be a donation.

Step 2:  YOUR WAY

Choose the way you want to participate, you can:

Make your move on your own or in your circle while social distancing.

Ask friends and family to sponsor you.

Arrange to pick up a “Walk for the Women” sign to accompany you on your move.

Share a selfie on Facebook or send us a photo. We’d love to post it to our website!

Step 3: YOUR DAY

Choose a day between September 11-13 to move with us.
