Making Angels in the Snow is one of the most fun and universal (and safe!) winter play activities for all ages.
From February 1- 28, head outside, make your snow angel and share your videos or images on social media using the hashtag #SnowAngelChallenge. There are many prizes to be won, including a category for most outrageous, so wear your favourite costume, silly hat or bathing suit- be creative! It is free to participate, but those who register to collect donations are entered to win even more prizes.
Every year, The Snowsuit Fund purchases and distributes more than 16,000 snowsuits to low income children 15 years and younger in Ottawa, bringing dignity and hope to families struggling with the necessities of life. Our core mission is to ensure that Ottawa’s most vulnerable children can have warm snowsuits to play outside in winter – without their families having to sacrifice other priorities. Perhaps few people know that as a grassroots organization, the Snowsuit Fund receives no government funding and relies on the generosity of caring groups and individuals to keep its 40-year operation going.
Free registration for individuals & groups
Registration is free for individuals, friends and family teams, clubs, sports leagues, government departments and community groups and associations.
A fun and safe activity for schools
Prizes for participation and spirit include art projects led by artist and Honourary Snow Angel chair Katerina Mertikas.
A worthwhile team building activity for workplaces
Workplace registrants pay $100 and receive online mentions for their contributions, as well as challenging their business competitors to up the ante.
Gather donations and win prizes
Everyone who registers and raises a minimum of $20 will receive a limited edition Snowsuit Fund toque. Additional prizes for high achieving fundraisers – individuals and teams – include pizzas, shopping sprees, gift cards and other experiences courtesy of our generous roster of
sponsors Canadian Tire, Giant Tiger and Gabriel Pizza with more to be announced.
Share pictures and videos
Share pictures or videos on your favourite social media platform and challenge three friends to do the same. Tag The Snowsuit Fund and use hashtag #SnowAngelChallenge so that The Snowsuit Fund Team can find you. Prizes will be awarded for most outrageous, highest engagement and most challenges issued.
