Coldest Night of the Year – Westshore

The Coldest Night of the Year (CNOY) is a winterrific family-friendly walk to raise money for local charities serving people experiencing hurt, hunger, and homelessness. Team up, fundraise, walk, and gather for good… because it’s cold out there. The event is hosted by Our Place Society Westshore and Pacific Centre Family Services Assn.

CNOY is a moment each year when tens of thousands of Canadians step outside the warmth and comfort of home to shine a light of welcome and compassion in their communities. Since 2011, the Coldest Night of the Year has raised over $96,000,000 across Canada in 166 communities – 100% of net proceeds stay local to support our CNOY charity partners. Learn more about our history.
