Coldest Night of the Year

The Victoria Rotarians have created a team – Victoria's Raging Rotarians – to participate in the 2024 Coldest Night of the Year Walk. The goal is for Victoria-area clubs to participate, including INTERACT and ROTARACT, and raise $10,000 for Our Place. In 2022 and 2023 we raised over $5000 each year - let's do better in 2024!

The group will make our Coldest Night of the Year walk to support the less fortunate at 10:30 AM on Saturday, Feb 24. We plan to start at Ogden Point, progress through Beacon Hill Park and James Bay, ending back where we started.
All proceeds go to support the Our Place Society.
                      Raising funds can be fun, too!

Date: Saturday, Feb 24, 2024
Time: 10:30
Place: Ogden Point ( should be lots of parking)
Distance: To the east end of Beacon Hill & back via James Bay is 5 km
Post-walk: Meet and have lunch at the James Bay Inn
Contact: Gordon Greeniaus for more information

Registration started on Dec 1, 2023. 

Covid-related health risks and operational challenges might not permit us to assemble in large groups in most locations again this year. So instead, we can plan to gather together safely, self-organizing individually or in smaller, covid-friendly teams as permitted.

  • Virtual Walk: Participants will self-organize individually or in team bubbles selecting their own safe walk route near home at a time convenient for them. 
  •  Date: While we encourage everyone to walk on our national event day of February 25, virtual fundraisers can select any day in February to walk if they wish. 
  •  No Registration Fee: The registration fee is no more! Everyone is welcome to come and support their local CNOY charity. (To be confirmed)
  •  Thank You Toques: This year, participants who raise a modest minimum will receive their own CNOY toque as our thank you for fundraising! ($150 for adults 18 and over, $75 for youth 17 and under) (To be confirmed)
  •  Cash + Cheques: There’ll be no cash or cheque collection on event day this year - this will keep everyone a little safer, and reduce the organizing strain on busy CNOY charities
