Rotary Club of Yorkton Walks - On the Coldest Night of the Year - 2018
 
Ok. It wasn't actually the coldest night - THIS YEAR.  The Rotary Club of Yorkton supports a multitude of diverse community initiatives in Yorkton as well as all over the globe. 
 
Following along two of Rotary's avenues of service (Community, Youth) , members of the Rotary Club of Yorkton and a few friends participated in this years "Coldest Night of the Year Walk" here in Yorkton. The route was 5 km long, and the fellowship was excellent.  A fantastic event, a nice walk and a warm Chili dinner at the end!
 
The benefactor of the local walk is Yorkton Transitional Homes for Youth (YTHY), an organization that supports and helps at risk youth transition to independent and prosperous independent living.
 
"Taking part in the Coldest Night of the Year - 2018 will hopefully, in a small way - help participants understand the experience of surviving on the streets during a cold Canadian winter" says Anthony Allary, Executive Director of YTHY, "raising funds to aid the work of Yorkton Transitional Homes for Youth, helps us in providing much-needed support to many youth members of our community - that are often most vulernable and overlooked".
 
Coldest Night walks will be taking place on the same night in an anticipated 120 cities from coast to coast, in service and support of various local charities.
 
As this was the first time our club participated in the walk, we did mess up on the registration a little bit, with all 4 walkers registering separately.
