It’s Cold Out There!


Posted by: Kimberly Walker

Coldest Night of Year – Sat., Feb. 22, 2020 – Registration 3:00 PM


Ray Shepherd Elementary is participating in this family friendly event, to raise money for SOURCES’ Homeless Prevention Services which includes the “Rent Bank” program.


Sources Community Resources Society provides Advocacy, Housing, Homeless Prevention and Rent Bank Services which helps individuals and families GET A HOME or KEEP A HOME by:

  • Providing support for matters relating to income assistance, government disability benefits, tenancy and debt
  • Assisting homeless individuals to find safe and affordable housing and offering ongoing support to help them remain housed.
  • Supporting individuals to maintain housing through advocacy and facilitated access to resources.


SOURCES provides many other services for our community such as the South Surrey/White Rock Food Bank, Women’s Place and Discovery (youth counselling).  For more info visit:  www.sourcesbc.ca


We invite you to walk with us, and/or make a donation to the Ray Shepherd Elementary Team at:

http://walk.w-ith.me/RayShepherd (Donations of $20.00 or more, will receive a charitable receipt.)



Walk Starts at Memorial Park, White Rock Beach: See GOOGLE MAP


3 pm: Registration opens

4 pm: Opening Ceremonies

4:15 pm: Walk begins (2, 5 or 10 kilometers, with rest stops)

5 pm: Light meal served to all walkers and volunteers

7 pm: Route closes, meal service ends



Children 0-10 Years: Free

Youth 11-17: Fundraise minimum: $75, or pay $25 registration fee

Adults 18+: Fundraise minimum: $150, or pay $25 registration fee

*What about toques? The CNOY toque is for anyone who raises the minimum (including kids 10 and under), or those who pay the reg fee.


On average, walkers raise about $200 each, and most donors give around $40-$50, so it’s a reachable goal! Note: The registration fee is non-refundable and is not eligible for a tax receipt.


Note: for each $150.00 collected in total, no registration fee is required. For example, should Ray Shepherd bring in $1,200, 8 adults walk for free.


Thank-you in advance for supporting local families
