Eva’s Walk for Homeless Youth (WHY) is an annual awareness and fundraising event that provides youth in grades 6 to 10 with an opportunity help their peers experiencing homelessness. It challenges students to put themselves “in the shoes” of someone experiencing homelessness to get a small sense of what it feels to be cold, tired, and a little bit hungry. WHY helps young people build empathy and understanding for their peers who don’t have a place to call home. That is key to building a future without youth homelessness!

WHY is a challenge that leads students down an inspiring path laid by incredible Toronto community leaders.
