The Coldest Night of the Year presented by Argos Carpets & Olympia Homes, is a fun, family-friendly walk that helps you raise funds for charities that serve hungry, homeless and hurting people in your community.

This year, you can help us reach our goal of raising over $175,000 to support life-changing programs in Ottawa.

About The Ottawa Mission

The Ottawa Mission provides food, shelter, clothing, and life-changing programs to people who are hungry, homeless and lost.

Last year we served an average of 1,312 meals each day and provided shelter to 236 people every night. Being a part of the walk means that you will help hundreds of people receive food, shelter and hope for a better future.
