It's cold out there. The Coldest Night of the Year is a family-friendly walk that raises money for charities serving hungry, homeless, and hurting people in our community. Walk with us on February 22, 2020!

About Bissell Centre

Walk for Bissell!


Too many individuals and families are struggling in our community, especially during winter’s coldest months. On February 22, brave the cold with us to change lives.


Guided by a passionate concern for the dignity and well-being of each individual, we work to eliminate poverty in our community. We offer an expansive network of programs and resources to help vulnerable Edmontonians find housing, employment, family supports, mental health services, and more.


Funds raised will support our Community Space, which allows individuals to walk in out of the cold and gain not only immediate access to basic needs like food, clothing, shelter and hygiene facilities, but the opportunity to seek life-changing supports to help empower them to move from poverty to prosperity. Watch the video tour!


Together, we can create change and re-write the future for those who feel hopeless, afraid, and alone.

Edmonton Downtown is super grateful for our fantastic 2020 sponsors! View all sponsors >
