Feb. 25: Take a walk on Coldest Night of the Year

Charity walk raises funds to support the hurt, the hungry and the homeless

The Coldest Night of the Year is a family-friendly walk, hosted by local charities to raise money to serve people experiencing hurt, hunger, and homelessness.

It’s a Canada-wide event taking place on the afternoon and evening of Feb. 25, with at least 13 walks in Toronto alone. Most offer a choice of two-kilometre and five-kilometre hikes.

To find out your walk’s location, to donate or to register for the walk, see the Coldest Night of the Year website.
