This year my wife and I along with my Special Projects Coordinator Howard Rabb and my assistant Colleen joined people from all across the city, and across the country to participate and raise money for this year’s Coldest Night of the Year walk.

This year walkers helped raise more than $60,000 for Neighbour 2 Neighbour.  A huge thanks goes out to all of the walkers, the sponsors, and of course the volunteers who helped make this year’s event such a success.

We were so lucky to have enjoyed one of the few warm evenings this year with temperatures rising to around -5 during the walk.  A nice improvement over the -20 we were sitting at the day before and are sitting at again today!

The route had us travel from St Stephen on the Mount Anglican Church, west along Concession and then walking back along Mountain Brow.  The sky was dreary, but the light snow that was falling and the fact that the temperature was higher than we’d been used to in previous days really made this event a lot of fun.

A dreary looking day but we had a great time.  We snapped a quick photo overlooking the lower city just before the hospital
