We can’t say whether the weather on Feb. 21, 2015 will indeed be the coldest day of the winter. We can say that it marks the fourth time that Mission Services of London will be the London host for a special event. The Coldest Night of the Year is a fantastically fun, family-friendly Winter WALK. It is a walking fundraiser that raises money for the hungry, homeless and hurting in 65 communities across Canada, including London.

The 2, 5 and 10km WALK will be on Saturday, February 21st, 2015 starting at Catholic Central High School on Dundas Street. Registration at 4:00pm, Kick-off at 5:00pm and WALK starts at 5:15pm. Stay for chili and social time afterward!

For general information on how to start, join or pledge a team and to register, please see the main CNOY site:
