A contingent of First Met members joined the Cadboro Bay and St Aidan's 'Holy Walkamolies' for the Coldest Night of the Year walk Feb 23. The team was 33 members strong. Walkers did a two km, five km or 10 km route followed by a light supper served at Our Place, courtesy of Whole Foods and volunteers from Our Place. More than 330 participants raised more than $50,000 to support extended opening hours at Our Place. Executive Director Don Evans expected the total to reach the goal of $55,000 by the time all donations were tallied.
Ready to go!
