SAULT STE. MARIE WELCOMES THE COLDEST NIGHT AGAIN ON FEB. 21
St. Vincent Place is encouraging Sault Ste. Marie residents to bundle up and raise cold, hard cash for The Coldest Night of the Year (WALK). A family-friendly winter fundraising event for Sault Ste. Marie’s homeless, hungry and hurting, the WALK takes place on the evening of February 21, 2015.
Taking part in the Coldest Night of the Year will help participants understand the experience of surviving on the streets during a cold Canadian winter, while raising funds to aid the work of St. Vincent Place in providing much-needed support to members of our community. Coldest Night walks will be taking place on the same night in 80 cities from coast to coast.
The Sault Ste. Marie WALK begins and ends at St. Vincent Place located at 222 Albert St. E., where walkers will register, turn in the results of their fundraising efforts, and return at the end of the evening for a warm celebration meal. Donning iconic blue-and-white toques, participants will walk a 2km, 5km or 10km route, and will warm up with toasty drinks at rest stops along the way. Registration begins at 4pm and the route will be closed by 8pm.
This is St. Vincent Place’s third year taking part in the Coldest Night of the Year, and they’re aiming to raise $50,000 for their work with the homeless in Sault Ste. Marie. An expected 250 walkers and 25 teams, including staff and friends of St. Vincent Place are expected to brave the cold winter’s night. You can get involved by becoming a walker or a volunteer. To register to be a volunteer or walker please register at http://www.coldestnightoftheyear.org. All walkers will need to raise $150.00 or pay a registration fee of $25.00
St. Vincent Place has been serving SSM for 11 years, and the boost in funds resulting from the Coldest Night of the Year will benefit their clients in a time of the year known historically for low levels of giving.

I would like to thank everyone in Sault Ste. Marie for their generosity to St. Vincent Place. We raised a value of $25,000 in canned food, this will help keep our shelves stocked for the next three months. This would not have been possible without the help of our volunteers, staff and the amazing support from the community. Thank you on behalf of St. Vincent Place.
