On Saturday, Feb. 22nd, 2020 thousands of Canadians of all ages, in six time zones, in cities and towns from the Pacific to the Atlantic, walked together in the Coldest Night of the Year Walk.
Here in London, ON, more than 300 walkers took part, raising over $80,000 to help men, women and children in need in our area.
Pledges (i.e. donations) collected by walkers will give hope and practical assistance to hundreds of individuals and families in 2020!
Mission Services of London was proud to host the event for the eighth time in a row. The walk brought the community together for the benefit of neighbours in need. With a fundraising goal of $70,000 this year, we are happy to report that we surpassed the goal!
Thank you ever so much London, ON and surrounding area for coming together to raise this important funding. Proceeds will be spread across the five Mission Services of London branches to help men, women and children experiencing, or at risk of, homelessness in our area.
Save the date for next year’s walk on Saturday, Feb. 20, 2021.
Once again, thank you to all the walkers, donors, sponsors, volunteers, and partners who made the event possible this February! View the recap video below for words of heartfelt thanks and highlights from the event:
