12th Annual UMOM Walk the Walk to End Homelessness

The UMOM Walk the Walk to End Homelessness is a local fundraising event that is near and dear to our hearts at Connect the Dots Promotions. We have supported and participated in this walk since the beginning and have been so proud to see how it has grown and, with that growth, there has been an increase of funds to end homelessness in our community. But, as we all know, there can always be more done to support the homeless community and this year is no exception!

Due to the unprecedented times we are in with the COVID-19 pandemic, plans had to be altered from our traditional walk at the Phoenix Zoo. In past years we have walked to raise funds and support and also set the World Record (which we still hold) for the longest 1K thong sandal race. For the event this year, we will be doing things a bit differently but they will still be a fun way to support UMOM and the great work they are doing to end homelessness. Rather than a walk, we will be having a fun, interactive scavenger hunt in which you get to choose your own scavenger hunt adventure. This can be played in your home or in your neighborhood. Whether you participate virtually or gather a small, safe group to complete the scavenger hunt with, we promise it will be an incredibly fun way to raise awareness and financial support for families, single women, and youth experiencing homelessness in Arizona.

To play along and support UMOM, please register HERE and download the Let’s Roam app so that you are all ready for the event on September 19th from 7am – 12pm. There are exciting prizes and raffles to make the event even more exciting for participants. Homelessness doesn’t stop just because of a pandemic and neither will we! Will you join us to participate in the 2020 12th Annual UMOM Walk the Walk to End Homelessness scavenger hunt?
