Coldest Night of the Year

Join us for the 9th Annual Coldest Night of the Year Walkathon!

Join us on Saturday February 23, 2019, to support the estimated 5000+ homeless living in Toronto at our 9th annual Coldest Night of the Year Walk. It's a family friendly opportunity to experience a night in their shoes as well as raising awareness and funds. The opening ceremony will begin at 5 pm to kick of the festivities and this year we will be honouring John Fenton, a faithful supporter of YSM and past participant in CNOY.

So join us! There are many opportunities for community, family and friends to participate. You can raise funds by registering and walking with your family or friends, you can volunteer and assist in event or you can support a walker or team. The possibilities are endless. Register today to support the hungry, hurting and homeless in our community.
