Coldest Night of the Year

Walk Date: Saturday, February 25, 2023

Coldest Night of the Year is our biggest fundraiser of the year!

Walk with a friend, with a group, or on your own and give someone in the community the tools they need to navigate trauma, cultivate healthier relationships or develop self-worth.
