Our favourite winter walkathon returned to the White Rock waterfront on February 25, 2017 and it was our most successful Coldest Night of the Year fundraiser yet!
Over $85,400 was fundraised for Sources Community Resource Centres’ Homelessness Prevention Services and Rent Bank, exceeding way beyond our $70,000 goal. This was Sources’ fourth year hosting the White Rock walk.
Thank you to all 42 teams and 300+ walkers, volunteers, sponsors, staff and donors for your fantastic support! Because of you, we can help more people in our community stay safe, warm and housed.
The Coldest Night of the Year is a fun, family-friendly 2, 5 and 10 km walk that happens in more than 100 communities across Canada on the same day. It allows participants the opportunity to experience a hint of the challenges faced by homeless people during cold Canadian nights in the dead of winter, as well as raise money to help these people.
Save the date for next year’s walk: February 24, 2018!
