Walk With Us

The Coldest Night of the Year is a covid-safe, family-friendly walk to raise money for charities serving people experiencing homelessness, hurt, and hunger.

Walk with us virtually on February 20, 2021– there’s a place for everyone!

Why We Walk

Too many individuals and families are struggling in our community, especially during winter’s coldest months.

Coldest Night of the Year is our largest annual fundraiser, which equips us with the funding we need to provide critical services to vulnerable Edmontonians during the cold winter months. We cannot do it without you!

Funds raised will support our Community Space, which allows individuals to walk in out of the cold and gain not only immediate access to basic needs like food, clothing, shelter and hygiene facilities but the opportunity to seek life-changing supports to help empower them to move from poverty to prosperity.

A Word from our Lead Sponsor

Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation

The Coldest Night of the Year walk is an event rooted in community and compassion, and represents what the Bissell Center stands for—slow and steady progress forward for those who may feel a step behind. And above all, it restores hope. The Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation is proud to continue its lead sponsorship of and support for the walk—and, in turn, the Bissell Center—in our common goal of improving health for all Albertans.
