Thank you to everyone who made the Coldest Night of the Year 2015 a success!

Feb 25, 2015 | News

It was a beautiful snowy night, and people of all ages bundled up and walked 2, 5 or 10km to help the hungry and homeless of Cornwall and area.

Our 120 walkers raised over $15,000!

A big thank you goes out to the 34 volunteers (including 4 police and auxiliary police officers), without whom the event would not be possible.

We would also like to express our gratitude to the business sponsors who helped make the event a success: Rona (5km), Bergeron Electric (1km), Cardinal Meats (1km), Sani-Sol (1km), Fantastic Cleaners (1km), Cornwall Business Machines (1km), and McDonald’s, Second Street (Rest Stop)

It’s not too late! You can still donate until April 10th.
