Coldest Night of the Year 2017
Only 23 days to go until WALK Day! The Coldest Night head office staff have been hard at work boxing up all the signs, forms, toques, lanyards, badges, labels, calculators, stationary, etc. to send off to our many amazing locations. (With over 80 locations, that's quite a task!)

Please support us as we walk to raise awareness. Huntsville needs this event to raise awareness and support for anyone in need.

This is one of my favourite days on the calendar. This event is amazing, and it is transforming lives... not only those who it is serving and assisting, but for all those who participate in this life ...changing event. Together we can accomplish so much. Proud of each of you and the CNOY Team for all that they do. See More

It is a great reason to walk around the neighbourhood singing or chatting as we go! Last year we had to avoid snow banks- maybe in 2016 there could be puddles instead!
We really need more joiners on o...ur team!! Come one come all!!! See More

CNOY is a well organized and executed event each year! When you participate, you know the money raised will go to the ministry or organization that you want to support.

It's a wonderful thing these walkers are doing. May god bless you all.

The deadline for cheques and online donations is March 31st so you've still got time to honour your CNOY pledge or make that online donation. You'll notice our national + locations fundraising thermometers will begin to move higher over the next two weeks as we verify all your deposits from Feb 24 and the 100's of cheques still coming into our office. #cnoy18
