Thank you Coldest Night of the Year 2021 for our most successful CNOY to date!
THANK YOU BURNABY! Although we had the extra challenges of a global pandemic as well as organizing the logistics for a new virtual model for CNOY 21, we blasted past our goal of $70,000 raising over $86 000!
This year’s Virtual CNOY boasted of over $86K raised, 42 Teams, 288 Walkers, and almost 1000 donors!
Thank you ALL our participants, sponsors, and donors for your enthusiasm and helping us make this CNOY such a successful year!
This year our virtual walk took place over the week of February 13 – 21, 2021, with teams choosing their own route and walk time to maintain a safe, socially distanced event.
We kicked off the week with a snowy toque pickup day from the parking lot of our sponsor Save On Foods at Willingdon and Kingsway.
We’d like to celebrate our top 10 teams and walkers this year. 🙌
GPS Map Art Contest (#CNOY21gpsart)
To add an interact element to our virtual event this year, we also held a GPS Map Art contest where walkers submitted GPS map art of their walk route. We are pleased to present the winners of the Most Creative and Most Amusing Categories:
GPS Art Winner – Most Amusing
Team Homeless Enders – Captain Karen O’Shannacery
Here’s what our judges had to say about this entry:
Good use of a basic design to create an interesting drawing. Good neighbourhood spread, between two major streets (Boundary Road & Willingdon Ave). Comedic thought to select a cruise ship design during the pandemic – You can’t go cruisin’, but you can paint the town with a cruise ship! HA!
GPS Art Winner – Most Creative
Team LHF – Kowalenko Family
Here’s our judge’s comments on this entry:
Loving the robot-esque design! Interesting use of the neighbourhood blocks to produce an interesting and fun walk – looks like the kind of walk someone would actually do. Clearly took some local knowledge and pre-planning. Reminds us of the Iron Giant! Solid distance covered – 9.55km!
Thank you everyone who participated in our GPS Art contest! We had lots of fun reviewing the entries!
