Register now for Coldest Night Walk for Our Place

Coldest Night of the Year event set for Saturday, Feb. 24

Our Place participates in Canada’s National Walk for Homelessness for the first time in 2018.

The centre invites the public to gather family and friends for the Coldest Night of the Year on Saturday, Feb. 24.

While the family-friendly walk raises much-needed funds for Our Place, it also offers people an opportunity to meet and connect with the homeless community they’ve come to support.

“On the coldest nights, we try to get as many people indoors as possible,” says Don Evans, executive director of Our Place. “But, unfortunately, there are still people left outside. This walk allows the community to come together and show how much they care about the most vulnerable members of society.”

“Despite the cold, it’s going to be a fun evening for a stroll,” adds Angelini. “We will have toques available, plus hot chocolate, and a warm meal after the walk.”

Our Place serves Greater Victoria’s working poor, impoverished elderly, mentally and physically challenged, addicted and the homeless.
