COLDEST NIGHT OF THE YEAR 2018

Hosted by the Campbell River and North Island Transition Society

On Saturday, February 24th, we at the Campbell River and North Island Transition Society hosted the Coldest Night of the Year fundraiser in support of our work helping the homeless, hungry, and hurting in our region. We recruited 25 volunteers and 20 teams, with over 145 walkers, and together raised $18,000 (we’re hoping to reach $20,000 once all of the counting is done) for our transition house, recovery and second-stage housing programs. How amazing is that?! Big thanks to the walkers and volunteers who participated in this event, as well as to our four major sponsors -99.7 2day FM Campbell River, the Campbell River Mirror, Anchor Inn & Suites (who provided us with a delicious hot meal), and Tim Hortons (who supplied coffee)- for supporting our WALK this year. Until next time!
