Ottawa, ON – The Ottawa Mission is thrilled to announce Mattamy Homes as a Lead Sponsor for this year’s Coldest Night of the Year (CNOY) walk-fundraiser. On Saturday, February 24th, The Ottawa Mission along with Mattamy Homes, ask that you walk with us and thousands of others across Canada in the annual Coldest Night of the Year event.
The Coldest Night of the Year is a family-friendly walk (2k, 5k or 10k) that provides people of all ages an opportunity to experience a hint of the challenges faced by those experiencing homelessness, especially during our cold Canadian winter. People can create a team with family and friends and raise pledges to support the life-changing programs at The Ottawa Mission. The Mattamy Homes Team is excited to also participate in the walk, alongside hundreds of others, to support The Mission.
This year’s event begins at Ottawa City Hall and sees walkers follow set routes through the downtown core. At the end of the walk, participants are offered delicious chili, dessert and hot beverages with their teams back at City Hall.
