The Coldest Night of the Year is a fantastically fun, family-friendly walking fundraiser that raises money for the hungry, homeless and hurting in 80+ communities across Canada on Saturday, February 21st, 2015.
The Bridge & Lighthouse serve people living with poverty in Saskatoon. Your involvement in the WALK will impact hundreds of lives in a positive way, helping build a bright future that once seemed out of reach. The Lighthouse exists to help people reach their potential by providing emergency shelter, supported living, and affordable housing for anyone who is in need of a place to call home. The Bridge exists to bring people together, to meet needs within Saskatoon’s inner city, so that ALL would be changed. The Bridge is in the beginning stages of expanding the programs and services it currently runs to include Transitional Program Housing.
