Coldest Night of the Year ~ It's Back!!!
On Saturday, February 25th, 2017, Sault Ste. Marie will once again join thousands of others in 110+ cities across Canada in "The Coldest Night of the Year," a 2, 5 and 10 km winter walk-a-thon in support of the hungry, homeless and hurting. In Sault Ste. Marie we'll be walking for St. Vincent Place. St. Vincent Place serves the homeless and/or poor in our community by providing shelter, clothing, food and household essentials, all supported by a dedicated group of volunteers and staff. On a weekly basis they serve approximately 200+ people.
Our goal in the WALK is to raise $60,000 on February 25th with the support of 30+ teams totaling 175+ walkers. This is a city wide event.
Bethel teams and volunteers have been an integral part of this event over the past 4 years. Would you consider getting involved in our event by becoming a team captain and recruiting 6-10 of your friends or colleagues to walk with you or supporting a team or participant with their fundraising goal?
The WALK will begin and end at St. Vincent Place, 222 Albert St. E. The event starts with registration at 4:00pm and the walk at 5:00pm, wrapping up by 8:00pm with a warm bowl of chili for all participants. Volunteers are needed to assist with the event and can sign up online or by contacting Jennifer Sarlo.
