Choices for Youth (CFY) is once again getting bundled up for the Coldest Night of the Year WALK for homelessness! Happening on February 24, the WALK is a family-friendly fundraising event that supports CFY’s Outreach and Youth Engagement Centre — where demand for our services continues to grow.

The St. John’s WALK begins at Atlantic Place, where walkers will register, turn in the results of their fundraising efforts, and return to CFY Outreach Centre the end of the evening for a warm celebratory meal. Donning the walk’s iconic toques, participants will walk a 3km route, and will warm up with toasty drinks at a rest stop along the way.

All monies raised will support CFY and those in our community who do not have access to safe and affordable housing. We are asking the community to start a Coldest Night team, gather pledges, and walk with us on February 24.
