The Coldest Night of the Year is on Saturday, February 22, 2020. CNOY is a family-friendly national walk-a-thon that helps you raise funds for charities that serve hungry, homeless and hurting people in your town, and in 136 communities across Canada.
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. By fundraising, you'll be contributing much-needed money to a charity in your town that is bringing hope and help to people in your community who need support.
Teams and walkers register online to set up their fundraising page and to walk 2, 5, or 10 km on a safe, looping 5 km route. There will be a rest stop and route marshalls on the route.
Registration opens at 4:00 pm. Walkers are released by 5:15, returning an hour or two later for a warm cup of yummy.
Everyone is welcome! CNOY is family-friendly. Walkers range in age from toddlers (with parents of course) to active seniors.
