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 Restore Canada - Markham

Restore Canada is training compassion volunteers across churches to reach out to the hungry, homeless and hurting in their neighbourhood, no matter their background or beliefs.


The vision is for churches to collaborate their efforts to eradicate poverty in their communities. To do this, Restore is building a community and engaged network of people who are not only willing and ready to serve, but are trained in the Restore Method of Care and supported with resources and tools to succeed.


We invite you to be apart of this movement, in any way that you can- and you CAN! Through this walk, you can join a team, start a team, donate to a team, and/or raise awareness. Please consider your role and jump on board!

Community Sponsors

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