COVID's impact in Canada on the operation of schools and most large group events within schools is significant. As a result, we've taken the sad decision to cancel the Coldest Day of the Year for the 2021 academic year. We look forward to revisiting it for 2022.
Students, parents or teachers can still support their local approved CDOY charity partner by registering to fundraise in the Coldest Night of the Year, Canada's national walk for homelessness.
CNOY is a moment each year in February when tens of thousands of Canadians (26,238 last year), step outside the warmth and comfort of home and shine a light of welcome and inclusion. Together, we're collecting donations ($6.25 million in fact), that fund critical services at a local charity partner who serves and supports vulnerable families and individuals in our CNOY community.
CNOY offers a virtual fundraising option that lets people fundraise and walk together. Why not get together in small, covid-friendly teams (think classroom bubbles or families), or walk individually any time in the month of February. You could also join an official CNOY location to walk in-person if you wish.
