The winter season can be full of treasured moments with family and friends. However, there are members of our community who really struggle during these cold nights – homeless, hungry, many times feeling hopeless. It is for them that we would like to invite you to be one of our ‘Heroes Without Capes’ by joining our 2nd Annual St. Felix Centre Coldest Night of the Year walkathon as a Team Captain. On February 22nd, 2020, many adults, families, seniors, and corporate groups will walk with us to make a difference.
Participating in the St. Felix Centre Coldest Night of the Year is an opportunity to get a closer understanding on how difficult it is to be out there in the “winter covered’ streets looking for a place to rest, and at the same time raising funds to support our guests. The Coldest Night of the Year is a national family-friendly walk which takes place in over 145 cities all across Canada on the same day and time.
But, what is St. Felix Centre?
Formally established in 1993, St. Felix Centre is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing compassionate service and a safe, welcoming and respectful environment inclusive of all religions, genders, cultures and abilities, to support some of the most marginalized individuals in Toronto’s downtown core. Please visit our website for more information: stfelixcentre.org.
Last year, we participated in this initiative for the very first time and it was an amazing success! 26 teams, for a total of 131 walkers, joined St. Felix Centre Coldest Night of the Year and raised more than $37,000 for our Centre! With your support, we know we can do even better this year. Many people, who couldn’t walk with us on that day, joined the initiative by sponsoring a walker or a team.
