Walking the cold streets for Mission Services

London Community News

The sounds of footsteps echoed a little louder through the streets of London on Saturday (Feb. 23) as more than 200 people came out to take part in the Coldest Night of the Year fundraising walk.

Held in support of Mission Services London, the event saw participants cover distances of either 2.5-, 5- or 10-kilomtres.

In 2012, the first year London participated in the Coldest Night of the Year Walk, more than $50,000 was raised. This year, organizers upped the ante, setting a goal of $60,000.

The money raised is used towards help funding Mission Services high-priority needs such as meals in shelter or outreach programs aimed at those suffering from mental illness that can’t or won’t make it into a shelter.

“We just want to thank all the people that donated their time, their money and their feet for walking,” said Kara James, Public Relations and Communications manager for Mission Services London. “We are appreciative of them all.”
