30th Annual COTS Walk


30th Annual COTS Walk
Thank you walkers, volunteers, donors, and sponsors! 


 Lift every voice because everyone deserves a home 

Thank you to all who joined us for this year’s COTS Walk! We are so grateful for your support. There’s still time to help us reach our goal. Make a donation today. 

The annual COTS Walk is a 3.5-mile trek (a shorter 1-mile route is available) around downtown Burlington that starts from Battery Park and follows the path a person experiencing homelessness might travel to connect with COTS shelter and services. This is the one day of the year COTS opens our program spaces to the community so people can see how their support makes a difference.

The COTS Walk has two purposes: To raise public awareness about homelessness in our community and to raise money to support COTS shelters and services for Vermonters who are homeless or are at risk of losing their homes. We walk for families and children, for our neighbors and community, and to ensure that every Vermonter has a safe place to sleep at night.
