It’s cold out there Ottawa! The Coldest Night of the Year charity walk returns to Ottawa’s Westboro Village — or take it to your very own neighbourhood!
We’re running a virtual event this year, which means you can get your walk on at our special Westboro route, or wherever is easiest for you.
Covid-friendly and suitable for the whole family, we welcome you to come together with your community to raise funds to help us help local women in need of support.
Feel the bite of the night on February 26 — or any February night that works for you — as a reminder of the hardships people endure when they don’t yet have a home.
All net proceeds from the event will directly help Cornerstone Housing for Women! We support women in Ottawa experiencing the crisis of homelessness find hope, healing, and housing.
Starting a team of co-workers, family, or friends is so easy — or you can sign up individually or with your dog!
Raise funds and then walk individually or in your team bubbles, either in your own neighbourhood or on our suggested Westboro routes. Your choice of 2km or 5km!
We look forward to seeing lots of photos of where you chose to do your 2km or 5km!
