Strides to End Homelessness is Kelowna's Gospel Mission's annual fun, family-friendly 5k walk or 10k run.

For over 40 years, Kelowna’s Gospel Mission has helped people who are struggling to meet basic needs in our community.  We assist people to move forward in their lives. We provide genuine acceptance with individually-tailored programs to help vulnerable people find housing, income, family supports, mental health services, spiritual guidance as well as basic care. Make the difference on Saturday, March 2nd at Kelowna's Gospel Mission as we walk with those we serve and, together, we will take Strides to End Homelessness. 

The goal of the walk is to raise $50,000 to continue with our shelter programs of beds, meals, outreach, casework and our women's 12 bed second stage transitional home, Harmony House.
