‘Coldest Night of the Year’ walk set for Feb. 22

The winter walk will support the Salvation Army Gateway of Hope shelter for homeless people.

Langley Township mayor Jack Froese is supporting the Coldest Night of the Year walk on Feb. 22.

The Salvation Army Gateway of Hope is calling on the Langley community to participate in the Coldest Night of the Year fundraising walk on Saturday, Feb. 22.

This will be a five and 10 kilometres family fun winter walk through Langley, starting at 5 p.m. The goal is to get 30 team captains to recruit 12 walkers and raise $25,000.

So far, six teams have formed and more than a dozen walkers have signed up.

The walk provides participants the opportunity to experience a hint of the challenges faced by Langley’s more than 100 homeless people.

A total of 65 communities across Canada participate in the walk, raising $2.4 million since its inception in 2011. If you would like to participate go to coldestnightoftheyear.org/location/langley.
