THE COLDEST NIGHT OF THE YEAR
February 24 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm PST
The Campbell River and North Island Transition Society is encouraging Campbell River residents to once again team up, fundraise, and walk in The Coldest Night of the Year (CNOY). This family-friendly, winterrific fundraising walk takes place on the evening of February 24, 2024, and supports women and their children experiencing hunger, hurt, and homelessness in our community and the entire North Island.
Tens of thousands of Canadians will take to the streets for CNOY with events taking place in 200 cities, towns, and communities across the country. By walking together in the chill of the night, participants will better understand the experience of being on the streets during a cold Canadian winter, while raising funds to aid the work of CRNITS in providing much-needed support.
The walk begins and ends at Rose Harbour, located at 1116 Dogwood Street. Participants will walk a 2km or 5km route, can warm up with toasty drinks provided by Starbucks, and will be able to celebrate their efforts together over a warm bowl of chili at the finish line. All those who raise over $150 (or $75 for youth) will also don iconic CNOY toques as they face the cold night.
This is CRNITS sixth year hosting the Coldest Night of the Year, and they’re aiming to raise $75,000 to continue providing supports and services that empower women to lead their best lives. With an expected 200 walkers and 40 teams, including staff and friends of the Transition Society they look forward to another successful event.
The Campbell River and North Island Transition Society has been serving Campbell River and the North Island for over 30 years, and the funds raised in the Coldest Night of the Year will benefit their clients in a time of the year known historically for low levels of giving.
