Coldest Night Of The Year 2019
February 23 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Coldest Night of The Year, Canada’s national walk for homelessness, takes place in Windsor at the Downtown Mission on Saturday, February 23, 2019.
Downtown Mission serves people living with poverty in Windsor. Your involvement in this walk impacts hundreds of lives in a positive way, helping build a bright future that once seemed out of reach.
The 2, 5 or 10 km walk provides each participant the opportunity to help fundraise for the Downtown Mission and feel a hint of the challenge faced by those experiencing homelessness – particularly during the winter.
4:00 – Registration opens
5:00 – Opening Ceremonies
5:15 – Walk begins (all distances)

Between 6:00 and 8:00 pm a warm, light meal will be served to all walkers and volunteers. So, be sure to linger with us afterwards, share some laughs, hang with some friends and celebrate the walk – at least till you warm up.
