Walking Together: Community Support Shines on Coldest Night of the Year 2024

We’re thrilled to share the exciting news that Port Alberni’s Coldest Night of the Year 2024 is getting an incredible boost from our dedicated sponsors and community-integrated service providers. Coulson Group, our steadfast lead sponsor, is leading the charge and generously supports us once again to ensure CNOY 2024 is a resounding success.

In addition to Coulson Group, we extend our heartfelt thanks to two supporting sponsors, Alberni District Co-op and BC Housing. Both of these sponsors regularly show their commitment to Coldest Night of the Year and Sage Haven Society.

The Port Alberni Port Authority takes the spotlight as our Rest Stop Sponsor, providing a welcoming pause for our walkers. Early supporters Mosaic Forest Management, Alberni Electric, and Suzanne Dubé, Financial Advisor, Mosaic Forest Management, have embraced the role of Route sponsors.

For those unfamiliar with Coldest Night of the Year, it’s a heartwarming, family-friendly winter walk that raises funds locally for Sage Haven Society, aiding those facing hardship, hunger, and homelessness. This year’s event marks the eighth year that Sage Haven Society has organized this community event in the Alberni Valley.

What truly sets our local event apart is the support of other community-integrated service providers. The Salvation Army, a longstanding supporter, will once again serve warm, nourishing meals to all registered walkers and volunteers. Teams from INEO, West Coast General Hospital Foundation, and the Port Alberni Health Unit are gearing up for a chilly yet spirited walk with their registered teams!

We extend special mentions to our goods and services sponsors for 2024: 99.3 the Peak, AV News, Salvation Army, and Char’s Landing, who all offer their services and goods to help make our event successful!

Join us on February 24, 2024, to team up, fundraise, walk, and take a moment to look closer—because it’s cold out there, but our community’s warmth is boundless. Let’s walk together for a cause that truly matters. Register online today!
