Coldest Night of the Year
COLDEST NIGHT OF THE YEAR is a winterific, family-friendly, national walk to raise money for local charities, such as Urban Hope, that serve people experiencing hurt, hunger, and homelessness. It is a moment when tens of thousands of Canadians step outside the warmth and comfort of home and shine a light of welcome and inclusion.
Team up, walk, and fundraise! It’s cold out there…but there’s no place like home.
Walk with us this February 26!

This year’s walk includes the choice of an in person walk or virtual (choose your own route) walk.

We walk through the cold and dark on February 26, 2022 to declare our concern for people who have no home and take shelter in nooks and crannies.
We walk for those whose days are a battle to house and feed their families and whose nights are filled with fear and frustration.
We walk for those driven from home by violence and abuse. And we walk for people overwhelmed by isolation, guilt, and despair.
We walk humbly, realizing that anyone can lose their footing and then lose everything else.
Each step we take brings someone closer to safety, health and home, as together, we raise funds for organizations whose commitment and work transforms peoples’ lives.
