A crowd forms before last year’s Coldest Night of the Year event in White Rock.

Coldest Night walk set for February

Sources Community Resource Centre’s annual fundraiser set for Feb. 20.

Sources Community Resource Centre’s annual Coldest Night of the Year fundraiser is just a few months away, and event organizers are seeking participants interested in taking part.

The event – which includes two, five and 10-km walks in more than 80 cities across the country, including White Rock, Surrey and Cloverdale – is set for Feb. 20 at 4 p.m. Sources is seeking participants to join a team and help raise funds through donations, with all funds raised locally going towards Sources’ homelessness-prevention services. This year, the organization aims to raise $70,000; last year’s event raised more than $51,000.
