Get set to join the Coldest Night walk

The Lighthouse Shelter, Salvation Army Food Bank and Second Harvest Food Bank are hosting the Coldest Night of the Year on Feb. 22. It’s a fun, family-friendly 5- and 10-kilometre fundraising walk to support the hungry, homeless and hurting in the community.

Sheldon Feener, Salvation Army, and Diana Mangold, Second Harvest, are asking for the community’s support by getting involved in this event.  In Salmon Arm, the goal is to raise $50,000, and  have 300 walkers.

“Now’s the time to register and start fundraising – don’t put it off,” says Feener.

“If everyone who walks will raise at least $200, we’ll be able to meet our goal,”adds Mangold.

Registration and fundraising is easy to do on the updated website at www.coldestnightoftheyear.com.
