Yorkton Transitional Homes for Youth is encouraging Yorkton and area residents to bundle up and raise cold, hard cash for The Coldest Night of the Year walk. A family-friendly winter fundraising event for Yorkton’s homeless, hungry and hurting, the walk takes place on the evening of Feb. 24. 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 Yorkton Transitional Homes for Youth in providing much-needed support to members of our community. Coldest Night walks will be taking place on the same night in an anticipated 120 cities from coast to coast. Donning iconic toques, participants will walk a 2km, 5km or 10km route. Registration will be at St. Paul Lutheran Church located at 73 Smith Street where walkers will register, turn in the results of their fundraising efforts. Last year, Yorkton Transitional Homes received close to $10,000.00. This year, we hope to reach or exceed our fundraising goal of $20,000.00. Here Jordan Patzwald of The Rock 98.5 and Anthony Allary prepare to spend last Thursday night in a van parked at Save On Foods in the Parkland Mall in Yorkton to raise awareness for the walk. They collected $1,200 in pledges and donations.
