Coldest Night of the Year
Open Arms mission will be participating in the Coldest Night of the Year walk (2,5, or 10klm) with our clients in order to get a small taste of what day to day life is like for them and to get to know those we are helping.
It’s time to get your team together. We are looking for some team captains who will gather a group of their friends, family members, coworkers or church small group to walk in this year’s fundraising event. So far we have seven team captains. Will you join them?
For more information or to register your team, go to the Coldest Night of the Year website. You can find great resources like sample fundraising letters and videos you can share with your friends. For more information about the walk, please call Pastor Jeff at 905-788-3800.
