It’s cold out there.

On February 25 (from 4:00 and 7:00 pm), Parkland Food Bank Society is hosting the Coldest Night of the Year, a 2 & 5 km winterrific walk in support of our work in the Tri-Region with people experiencing hunger.

    GOAL: With your help, our goal is to raise $90,000 by February 25, 2023!

    HOW: To accomplish our goal, we’re looking for 40 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 as thanks for being amazing fundraisers.
