Cold Hands Warm Hearts - Edmonton
What: We will be walking in unity to raise support for people experiencing homelessness in Edmonton. We start and finish at Hope Mission, our headquarters for stories, activities, food, and a place of warmth.
When: Saturday, March 2nd, 2019. Come walk with us to support our hurting and hungry neighbours. Registration opens at 10:00 am, and the walk itself will begin at 11:15 am.
Where: 9908 106 Ave. Beginning at Hope Mission, we will walk 2 and/or 5 km through Edmonton’s downtown core.
Why: Our walk is in support of all the men, women and children who are cold and hungry this season, and through our support, to bring them hot meals and care.
Goal: Our goal is an ambitious $40,000! To accomplish our goal we’re looking for 35+ team captains (of any age) who will recruit 6-8 friends to their team, with a goal of raising $1000 per team. Individuals can also choose to join an existing team that needs support.
How: You have two options:
1. Sign up as a team captain: You are the real MVP of this event. Your task, should you choose to accept, is to get 7-8 friends, family, coworkers, church friends, school pals, team mates, etc., to join your team. You will oversee your team's fundraising and stand alongside your posse as you walk together!
2. Join a team for the event: If you are the recruit, look for your Team Captain and get fundraising! If you are looking to walk but don't have a team, you don't have to walk alone! We have many teams that will take you under their wing to walk with you.
