A Record Breaking Fundraiser
The 11th Annual Walk to End Homelessness was a tremendous success in raising awareness and catching the attention of many people. Even those from outside Arizona. The annual fundraiser managed to have 2800 people from all walks of life participate in the events. From families to the sponsors themselves, everyone was ready to walk the walk.
Guinness World Records was also there to document the record breaking walk. The 11th Annual Walk to End Homelessness definitely did not disappoint!
The record breaking walk was held from from 7am to 9am and records were broken! It’s all thanks to the 1,942 amazing people who joined the walk and beat the current record holders of 1,641 participants by 301 people! The fundraiser also managed to raise around $150,000 for the betterment of the lives of the homeless.
From the registration at 6am to the end of the record breaking fundraiser, people were smiling and ready to walk to end homelessness. The event might be over, but UMOM, Renco Roofing, and the Phoenix community are still ready to walk the walk and strive to end homelessness together.

“You can talk the talk, but can you walk the walk… to end homelessness?”
RENCO Roofing cares deeply for the community. That’s why it's important for us to have a team who is dedicated to serving our community not just by providing the best roofing services, but also by contributing to the welfare of others.

UMOM’s mission is to prevent and end homelessness with innovative strategies and housing solutions that meet the unique needs of each family and individual. Founded in 1964, UMOM is located in Phoenix, Arizona and is an innovative provider of shelter, housing and services for people experiencing homelessness.
Every night UMOM provides safe shelter and supportive services for over 170 homeless families, 130 single women and 70 youth. We also offer nearly 300 units of affordable housing across the Valley.
This year, in celebration for the walk’s 10th anniversary, UMOM New Day Centers has made history by breaking the Guinness World Record for The Most People Completing a 1K Walk in Flip-flops. The event was joined by 2163 participants and has raised a total of $103,866.55.
