Have you heard the news?!? The Coldest Night of the Year is almost here!! Only 14 days until we WALK!
What is Coldest Night of the Year? CNOY is a fantastically family friendly walking fundraiser that raises awareness for the hungry, homeless and hurting. It is a national event, where thousands of people will be walking all across Canada, raising funds for charities in their own communities. In Orillia, all fund raised go towards the operating costs of The Lighthouse Soup Kitchen and Shelter, as well as a portion going towards Building Hope initiative (our incredible plan to build a new shelter for men, women and families, in partnership with the Canadian Mental Health Association). Every day, there are homeless in our own community, and we want to do something about it.
Last year in 2015, close to 300 people on 42 teams came together to raise close to $53,000. And this year, we want to crush those numbers!
Our goal for 2016 is $55,000! As of today (Saturday, February 6th) we have 43 teams, with 176 walkers registered and we have made 42% of our goal! We can’t wait to see what happens on February 20th.
