Coldest Night of the Year 2024

The Coldest Night of the Year is a winterrific family-friendly walk to raise money for local charities serving people experiencing hurt, hunger, and homelessness. Team up, fundraise, walk, and gather for good… because it’s cold out there.

The Coldest Night of the Year is a moment when tens of thousands of Canadians step outside the warmth and comfort of home and shine a light of welcome and inclusion.

  •  We walk through the cold and dark on February 24, 2024 to declare our concern for people who have no home and take shelter in nooks and crannies.
  •  We walk for those whose days are a battle to house and feed their families and whose nights are filled with fear and frustration.
  •  We walk for those driven from home by violence and abuse. And we walk for people overwhelmed by isolation, guilt, and despair.
  •  We walk humbly, realizing
     that anyone can lose their footing and then lose everything else.

Each step we take brings someone closer to safety, health and home, as together, we raise funds for organizations whose commitment and work transforms peoples’ lives.
