The Coldest Night of the Year is a Nation-wide, family-friendly walk that raises money for charities serving the hungry and homeless people in our community.
On February 23, people in Kenora are invited to partake in the walk (hosted by Jubilee Church and the Fellowship Centre) to help raise funds for the Fellowship Centre. You can choose the 2k, 5k or 10k walk.
Route marshalls, rest stop attendants, and sweep vehicle drivers will be available for support along the route.
All walkers 12 and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times.
"We need your help as we strive to make a huge difference in our community to continue our services.. Please walk with us for the Coldest Night of the Year Walk on February 23/2019. They have a heart for wanting to improve the quality of life for them. Home is where the heart is and so many desire to have a place to call their own.
