Coldest Night of the Year
FEB. 24 BRINGS THE 6th ANNUAL COLDEST NIGHT ONCE AGAIN TO BRAMPTON
Regeneration Outreach Community is encouraging Brampton residents to bundle up and raise cold, hard cash for The Coldest Night of the Year 2018. A family-friendly winter fundraising event for Brampton's homeless, hungry and hurting, the WALK takes place on the evening of February 24, 2018.
Thousands of participants will be taking part in the WALK in 120 cities across Canada. By walking together in the chill of the night, participants will better understand the experience of being on the streets during a cold Canadian winter, while raising funds to aid the work of Regeneration in providing much-needed support to members of our community.
Brampton's WALK begins and ends at Century Gardens Recreation Centre, located at 340 Vodden Street East, where walkers will register, turn in the results of their fundraising efforts, and return at the end of the evening for a warm celebration meal. Donning Coldest Night of the Year toques, participants will walk a 2km, 5km or 10km route, and will warm up with toasty drinks at rest stops along the way.
This is Regeneration's 6th year taking part in the Coldest Night of the Year, and they're aiming to raise $100,000 for their work with the homeless in Brampton. An expected 400 walkers and 60 teams, including staff and friends of Regeneration and the City of Brampton are expected to brave the cold winter’s night. In the past six years, Coldest Night walkers have helped Regeneration raise over $400,000.
Regeneration has been serving Brampton since 1999, and the funds raised in the Coldest Night of the Year will benefit their clients in a time of the year known historically for low levels of giving.
