Streets Alive Mission will hold its annual “The Coldest Night of the Year” walk on Feb. 22.

Walkers will be raising funds and inviting others to walk with them in teams. The mission is aiming to raise $60,000 to aid their life-recovery work with the less fortunate in Lethbridge. The Coldest Night of the Year will be hosted at E-Free Church on Highway 4. The walk will be a rotating circuit from the host location at 4717 24 Ave. S.

Walkers and teams from local businesses, churches and other community groups are encouraged to sign up now to start gaining support to help reach their fundraising goals. Interested walkers are advised to register as soon as possible at https://cnoy.org/location


There are also sponsorship opportunities available for local businesses and media who wish to support the event.

Lethbridge is one of 145 locations across Canada taking part in the annual walk. Across the country to date, there are 5,741 walkers signed up on 1,911 teams, with 8,226 donors and 1,619 volunteers helping out for the event.
