COLDEST NIGHT OF THE YEAR — FEB 23, 2019
I am pleased to announce that The Society To End Homelessness In Burnaby has partnered with Burnaby Community Services to host Burnaby’s third annual Coldest Night of the Year.
The Coldest Night of the Year is a super-fun, family-friendly fundraiser that raises money to support and provide services for Burnaby’s homeless citizens.
It is done by people forming teams for either a 2, 5 or 10 km walk, and then getting pledges from friends, family, coworkers and others for the person or team to complete their walk.
It’s cold out there. And on February 23rd, 2019 we’re doing something about it.
Together with thousands of Canadians across the country, our team will be walking in the Coldest Night of the Year, raising much-needed funds for local charities who support and serve the hungry, homeless, and hurting.
“By walking at dusk during a cold winter’s night you’ll feel a hint of the challenge faced by those experiencing homelessness during winter. And, by fundraising, you’ll be contributing much-needed money to a charity in your town bringing hope and help to people in your community who need support.” (CNOY)
Sign up to walk and participate!
