It’s been a little over two months since we last posted here — apologies for the radio silence as day jobs, holidays and other responsibilities got in the way! We are back and really excited to share a community opportunity with you: a fundraising walk for Kennedy House as part of the Coldest Night of the Year nation-wide fundraiser.

Here is the press release from Kennedy House:
Kennedy House staff, friends and family are walking to raise awareness and funds for youth experiencing homelessness
(February 7, 2023) Toronto, ON – On Saturday, February 25, 2023, staff, family and friends of
Kennedy House will be raising money for programs and services by walking in the Coldest Night
of the Year. This is the 7 th annual Kennedy House CNOY event and it will be hosted on the
Danforth, Toronto at 4pm. This fundraiser, held in more than 130 communities nationwide,
aims to raise funds and awareness for programs and services that support populations
experiencing homelessness, or at-risk of experiencing homelessness. Kennedy House walkers
and teams will be walking 2 or 5km to support the Kennedy House youth programs.
Together, we will brave the cold and walk with family and friends as advocates for youth who
not only need our support, but deserve it. We want to see leaders come out of this community
and show the next generation that forging a positive path can be done.
