Coldest Night of the Year Event Raises Funds and Awareness for Homelessness

Child With CNOY Baloons

2014 CNOY WalkersIt may not have technically been the coldest night this winter, but it ended up being one of the snowiest! 

On Saturday February 22, about 200 Nanaimo and Parksville area residents gathered at John Barsby Community School in Nanaimo to don "Coldest Night of the Year" toques, turn in their pledges, and walk together down the wet and slippery streets to raise much needed funds for the Island Crisis Care Society. 

The snow never let up and neither did the walker's resolve to finish the 2, 5, or 10 Kilometer loops around Harewood, South Nanaimo, and the Old City Quarter. 63 communities across Canada participated in the event this year and collectively raised a national total of $2,327,863.00.
