The Coldest Night of the Year is a fantastically fun, family-friendly walking fundraiser that raises money for the hungry, homeless and hurting in 65 communities across Canada. This walk is being brought to Oceanside by Island Crisis Care Society, who provides shelter and care for those in need in both Nanaimo and Oceanside. All money raised through the Oceanside Walk will stay in the Oceanside area.
The 2, 5 and 10km walk is held on Saturday, February 21st, 2015, and provides participants the opportunity to experience a hint of the challenges faced by those experiencing homelessness while raising much needed revenue to help our most vulnerable access and maintain housing in our community. Your involvement in this walk will impact hundreds of lives in a positive way, reaching out to the homeless and hurting in the Oceanside area, including Qualicum Beach, Parksville, and from Nanoose to Deep Bay.
To sign up a team or as a walker our community location is called Oceanside.
