Thirty three thousand Canadians have nowhere to call home tonight. They’re homeless, sleeping on streets, in cars, abandoned buildings or in a shelter.
But on February 25th, thousands of Canadians will do something about it – including here in Vancouver.
Vancouver is one of 100 cities taking part in this year’s Coldest Night of the year – Canada’s National Walk for Homelessness.
The Coldest Night is a two, five and ten kilometre walk that raises funds and awareness for those serving the hungry, homeless and hurting in their communities.
The walk in Vancouver will raise funds for CityReach Care Society, an organization serving low-income families and children, as well as those who are street involved and struggling with addictions and other hardships.
Note: Walkers who raise $150 (adults) or $75 (youth aged 13-17) do NOT have to pay the $25 registration fee.
So bundle up and join your friends and family walking and raising pledges on February 25th in the Coldest Night of the Year. To sign up and walk, or donate, go to www.coldestnightoftheyear.org.
