Yorkton Transitional Homes for Youth is encouraging Yorkton and area residents to bundle up and raise cold, hard cash for The Coldest Night of the Year (WALK). A family-friendly winter fundraising event for Yorkton’s homeless, hungry and hurting, the WALK takes place on the evening of February 24, 2018.
Taking part in the Coldest Night of the Year will help participants understand the experience of surviving on the streets during a cold Canadian winter, while raising funds to aid the work of Yorkton Transitional Homes for Youth in providing much-needed support to members of our community. Coldest Night walks will be taking place on the same night in an anticipated 120 cities from coast to coast.
Donning iconic toques, participants will walk a 2km, 5km or 10km route, and will warm up with toasty drinks at rest stops along the way.
Last year, Yorkton Transitional Homes received close to $10,000.00, This year, we hope to reach or exceed our fundraising goal of $20,000.00.
