Thank you to our registrants, donors, sponsors, volunteers, and staff for making this possible. We had an amazing turnout for this year's event including 473 COTS Walk registrants, 97 volunteers, and over 1,500 Walkers. With your support, we raised an incredible $240,829.75. COTS Walk donations are a main source of funding for our shelters, programs, and services.
Everyone at COTS wants to say that we deeply appreciate you - for walking, fundraising, supporting, and helping to raise awareness about homelessness in our community. It was inspiring to Walk with you. The sun was shining, faces were smiling, and we were moving to the beat of Sambatucada. This year we had our first official team of COTS clients, guests of our transitional housing program, who were inspired during a house meeting to show their support for the organization that was accompanying them on their journey to permanent housing.
"The COTS Walk is an incredible example of the community that we strive to build in our work with our guests. Thank you for coming together in supporting our neighbors, and thank you for walking with us in the belief that Everyone Deserves a Home!"- Jonathan Farrell, COTS Executive Director.
