Coldest Night of the Year

it’s cold out there.

Thank you to everyone who donated, walked and volunteered for Coldest Night of the Year 2024!

Together we raised more than $87,000.

Save the date  – we walk again February 22, 2025 in Bradford

The Coldest Night of the Year is a winterrific family-friendly walk to raise money for local charities serving people experiencing hurt, hunger, and homelessness.


This year, your United Way is partnering with WOW Living to raise funds in support of our most vulnerable friends and neighbours through Coldest Night of the Year. So, build a team, rally friends, family, neighbours, and co-workers, as every step taken, and every dollar raised contributes to these two organization’s efforts to reduce poverty in our community.

United Way Simcoe Muskoka’s 2023 Coldest Night of the Year event in Bradford involved 200 walkers and 40 volunteers who helped to raise over $58,000.

This year’s goal is to raise $75,000.

Join us in making this winter evening one of compassion and community connection.
