Coldest Night of the Year 2016

Description: Stratford Perth Shelterlink recently held their 'Coldest Night of the Year' fundraiser, which was a 2, 5, or 10 km walk around the Lake Victoria in Stratford. An amazing turn out of over 160 participants that raised over $35,000 ($10,000 over their goal!) and helped raise awareness for youth and adult homelessness in Perth and Stratford. The event was generously supported by Lead Sponsor Mark's and event sponsors Libro Credit Union, NR Renovations and Ideal Supply. The Kiwanis Centre on Riverside Drive was the starting and finish location and volunteers kept participants warm with light meal and hot beverages. Stratford/Perth Shelterlink provides Perth County youth ages 16-24, who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, with shelter, basic needs, community aid and advocacy services.
