The Salvation Army Gateway of Hope is calling on the Langley community to participate in the Coldest Night of the Year fundraising walk on Saturday, Feb. 22.

This will be a five and 10 kilometres family fun winter walk through Langley, starting at 5 p.m. The goal is to get 30 team captains to recruit 12 walkers and raise $25,000.

So far, six teams have formed and more than a dozen walkers have signed up.

The walk provides participants the opportunity to experience a hint of the challenges faced by Langley’s more than 100 homeless people.

A total of 65 communities across Canada participate in the walk, raising $2.4 million since its inception in 2011. If you would like to participate go to coldestnightoftheyear.org/location/langley.
