Coldest Night of the Year 2020

Time to get ready for the Coldest Night of the Year! Sign up today to walk/donate/volunteer and support those that are hungry and hurting in your community!!
Because it’s cold out there.

On February 22, Parkland Food Bank Society is hosting the
Coldest Night of the Year, a 2, 5 & 10 km winter walk hosted in
133+ cities across Canada in support of our work here in
Spruce Grove, Stony Plain and Parkland County with the hungry and hurting.
• GOAL: With your help, our goal is to raise $60,000 by February 22, 2020!
• HOW: To accomplish our goal, we’re looking for 35 team captains (of all shapes, sizes and ages) who will recruit 7-8 friends to their team, with a goal of raising $2000 per team. Of course, we’re also looking for a whole pile of walkers to join each of our teams and help us raise the funds.
• TOQUE BONUS: Every walker who raises either $75 (youth 17 and under) or $150 (for adults) gets our famous Coldest Night toque.

The Coldest Night of the Year is a super-fun, family-friendly walking fundraiser that raises money for the hungry, homeless and hurting in 100+ communities across Canada. The money raised for the Spruce Grove walk will go directly to Parkland Food Bank to help keep nutritional food accessible to families in the Tri Region.

The WALK is held on Saturday, February 23th, 2019, and provides each participant the opportunity to:

  • walk 2, 5, or 10km
  • fundraise much needed money for a local, hard-serving charity.
  • feel a hint of the challenge faced by those experiencing homelessness – particularly during the winter

We are hoping that you will participate in our Coldest Night of the Year walk-a-thon in at least one of four ways.

1. Enter a team of friends and family members and try and collect a few donations for Parkland Food Bank. We are looking to have 40 teams register.

2. Join a team already registered in the walk and collect a few donations for the food bank. Parkland Food Bank has a team that is available for individuals who want to participate.

3. Find a team or a walker that is registered for the event and consider donating $25 to encourage them as they prepare to walk Feb. 23 no matter what the weather brings. Thank you for you continued support of Parkland Food Bank!!! Help us spread the word on our walk-a-thon as we come to the last couple of days!

4.  Volunteer for the event. We are looking for a variety of volunteers from walker registration to keeping everyone one the right path on the walking route.
