Coldest Night of the Year

The Coldest Night of the Year – Feb 22

Dear Business Owner,

On February 22, 2020, Ladysmith has something to celebrate – and so could you! That’s the night folks in Ladysmith will join thousands of others in 100+ cities across Canada in “The Coldest Night of the Year”, a 2, 5 and 10 km winter walk-a-thon in support of the hungry, homeless and hurting.

In Ladysmith, we’ll be walking for the Ladysmith Resource Centre Association. Once again, the Ladysmith Resources Centre Association (LRCA) is partnering with Blue Sea Foundation (the creators of Coldest Night of the year) to host this amazing event. The LRCA serves the homeless, poor and hurting in our community by providing shelter, clothing, food, household essentials, and support services all supported by a dedicated group of volunteers and staff. We do this through the operation of our extreme weather shelter, soup kitchen, food bank, counseling services, seniors advocacy office, family and youth support services, early years programming, family counseling and more. Please see our Highlights sheet to see the impact we are making in the community.

Our goal in the WALK is to raise $20,000 with the support of 18+ teams and 75+ walkers. I’m writing to you to ask for your support in one or even two ways:

1. Sponsorship

First, would your business consider sponsoring our event with an investment of $250, $500 or $1,000? There are many benefits to being a sponsor. Please reach out to me for more information and how you can become a sponsor: christy [at] lrca [dot] ca

2. Participation

Second, would you also consider engaging the WALK by registering a team and recruiting 8-10 employees to walk and raise money with us that night?

The WALK is something special. It’s fun, challenging and meaningful. The LRCA is also something special and its work and service in our community are essential. Please consider joining us by walking and sponsoring this great event.

And remember, its cold out there.
