Coldest Night of the Year is a family-friendly walking fundraiser to support Choices for Youth's work with at-risk and homeless youth in our community. 

On Saturday February 25th 350 community members will brave the St. John's winter to walk in solidarity with the young people Choices' serves. We're looking for volunteers to join us to smoothly guide those 350 people from start, through the route, to finish (where a hot meal waits!)
