2021 -COLDEST NIGHT goes VIRTUAL! Replacing a large gathering, participants will raise funds and walk individually. ASCENSION's TEAM can be supported here: https://secure.e2rm.com/registrant/FundraisingPage.aspx?registrationID=4863911&langPref=en-CA Thank you!
Recognizing the needs of people who are homeless or unsafely sheltered, Ascension has had a team that has participated and fund-raised for the Coldest Night of the Year Walk in Nelson annually since 2017.
We gather with several hundred citizens of Nelson and walk 2 km to raise funds for improved low-income housing in our town.
Friends and Members of Ascension continue to generously support this effort. In 2020 our team raised $1100 for this important community need.
