On the evening of Saturday, Feb. 24, seven members of the St Peter, Comox parish joined with 40,900 other walkers across Canada in the annual Coldest Night of the Year walk to support and serve individuals and families experiencing hurt, hunger and homelessness in our community. This is the fifth year that St Peter has participated in the walk. We were blessed with perfect weather for the five-kilometre walk, which ended with a well-deserved chili supper. Vicki Boswell, who participated in the walk, says, “It was wonderful to see such a diverse group of people come out in support of the homeless and hungry. Everyone was in great spirits, most especially the volunteers! It was not only well attended but well organized.” 

Our team was small but mighty, raising $4,700 to support the Comox Valley Transition Society, which offers outreach and support to individuals and families presently or at risk of becoming homeless, and Dawn to Dawn—Action on Homelessness, which provides innovative housing solutions for the unhoused in the Comox Valley. 

We are already making plans for next year’s walk on Feb. 22, 2025!
