Coldest Night Edmonton

 facebook_icon_9




This year J and I decided to participate in a fundraising walk The Coldest Night of the Year walk on Feb. 23.

Thanks to the Twittersphere  – I have had the luck of connecting with Hope Mission’s Devin Komarnsiki and his ‘Hope Tweet Fleet’ team for the Coldest Night walk.

Coldest Night is a non-competitive (say what 😉) 5 and 10 km winter-walk fundraiser supporting select Canadian charities that serve the hungry, homeless and hurting in cities and communities across Canada. In Edmonton the select charity is Hope Mission.

So far there are 41 teams and 205 walkers signed up for the Edmonton walk. Each city has their own overall fundraising goal and Edmonton’s is $50,000. Edmontonians have raised 68% of that goal to date and there are officially 10 days left until the walk.

Please donate to my team, or to another team in Edmonton – in the end it all goes towards a great cause.

  1. Join Hope Mission and hundreds of Canadians as we walk 5 or 10 km in our respective inner cities on February 23, 2013, in order to generate awareness for what it is like to be homeless in the dead of winter. February is a cold and challenging month for the people we serve, and it’s also one of the quietest months for financial support. Our goal is to raise $50,000 in support of Hope Mission’s work with the hungry, homeless and hurting in our city.
