The blowing snow is a reminder of the harsh conditions Mother Nature can bring us in the northwest. Willa Zlabis was among those, who were walking in support of those on the street last night in Kenora.
"We were fortunate enough that it's been a nice night, but people in our community don't always have that luxury of a nice night. They're having to spend a night outside," she said.
Teams raised close to $14,000 through the event.
Walkers also included Treaty 3 youth council member Will Landon.
"It is important for all services to work together in promoting quality life outcomes for all people in the Treaty #3 region. Whether we are promoting local services, advocating for resources and systemic change, working in the front lines, or simply living and working in the community; we all have a responsibility to make the world a little bit brighter and ensure everyone has the opportunity to live or work towards mino-biimadiziwin,” he said.
Landon was able to walk 10 km and raise more than $200.
