Please join us once again for our main fundraiser—Coldest Night of the Year on February 22nd, 2020. This year’s goal is $150,000 and we can reach it with your help. This fun, family-friendly walking fundraiser helps Start Me Up Niagara help the hungry, homeless and hurting in our community. Walkers can opt for a 2, 5 or 10 km route and experience a hint of the challenges faced by those dealing the reality of homelessness.
