There’s no better time than NOW to register for Coldest Night of the Year in Lethbridge!

Residents, community groups, groups of friends, individuals, and businesses will all be bundling up to raise cold, hard cash for ‘The Coldest Night of the Year’ taking place this year on February 25. This is a FUN family-friendly winter fundraising event for Lethbridge’s hungry, hurting and less-fortunate.

Walkers and teams from local businesses, churches, and other community groups are encouraged to sign up NOW to start gaining support to help reach their fundraising goal. Interested walkers are recommended to register as soon as possible at http://streetsalive.ca/cnoy2017.

This is our 6th year taking part in the Coldest Night of the Year – we’ve been walking since CNOY started!

Our goals this year!

  • Raising $40,000 to support our life-recovery programs in Lethbridge.
  • 200 walkers on
  • 40 teams!

Walkers including staff, friends of the Mission, and local businesses will be braving the cold winter’s night together on Feb 25th.

The Coldest Night of the Year is much more than just one chilly night.

Coldest Night of the Year is much more than one chilly night, though. Before the walk even begins, walkers will be raising funds and inviting others to walk with them in teams. Each walker and each team will be looking for the support of their friends and family to make the fundraiser a success, not to mention the encouragement needed to face a possibly brutal winter night in Lethbridge.

What if walking in the cold isn’t your style?

If walking in the cold isn’t quite your style, keep an eye on your social media channels to support those who are walking in your community.

There are also Sponsorship Opportunities available, from Lead Sponsor to Distance Sponsors, for local businesses and media that wish to support the event and reach a wider audience while aligning with a charity dedicated to life change. (more…)

Several local Lethbridge businesses teamed up to share the true spirit of Christmas by donating items and stuffing 400 “Goodie Bags of Love” for people in need this holiday season.

On December 14th, about 25 volunteers from Zero Gravity Cranes & Rigging Inc., My Automotive, Lealta Building Supplies, Russell Grain & Cattle, Lone Pine Embroidery, and Sun Dental Group donated the all the “goodies” and gave back to the community by volunteering their time to assemble 400 Christmas goodie bags for Streets Alive Mission clients.

Hayley Feter from Zero Gravity Cranes & Rigging Inc. helped to organize the group. She said,

“Each year we try and find an organization here in town that inspires us. A while back I had a chance to volunteer on the Streets Alive bus and it sparked my interest in Streets Alive. This organization is inspiring, important to our community and the work they do is so incredibly hard.”

She added,

“We want to give back to this community and this organization that works tirelessly behind the scenes.”

 

From the photos shared, it sure looks like everyone had a good time and was glad to be participating!
