The Coldest Night of the Year (CNOY) is a covid-safe, family-friendly virtual walk that takes place across the City to raise money for charities serving people experiencing homelessness, hurt, and hunger.
The idea of people walking in the cold to try and understand what it might be like to experience homelessness isn’t unique. Charities across North America have been doing variations of this fundraiser for years. Established in 2011, CNOY merely took the concept and built on it for the benefit of many more charities.
My staff member Sue Garvey was the Executive Director of Cornerstone and was instrumental in establishing the Westboro Cornerstone residence. I hope you will join me in honouring her great work and continuing the legacy of helping homeless women in need.
