On February 20, 2016, Sources’ third annual Coldest Night of the Year walkathon fundraiser took over White Rock’s beachfront, raising $62,000 for our Homeless Prevention Services and Rent Bank.
Our eyes were glued to the weather forecast all week, expecting rain, but luckily the skies cleared, the sun came out, and we put our umbrellas away.
Thank you to the 300 walkers, volunteers, sponsors, staff and supporters for helping us keep more people in our community safe, warm and housed!
A special thank you to our promotions committee (Cindy Walker, Susi Vasseur, Carolina Perezalonso, Kathryn Campbell) for their hard work in making this event possible.
Together, we can take steps to prevent homelessness from happening.
Together, we can make a difference for people who are hungry, homeless and hurting.
We hope to see you next year for our 2017 Walk!
You can still donate!
Help us reach our $70,000 fundraising goal:

Coldest Night of the Year is a fantastically fun, family-friendly 2, 5 and 10km winter 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.
