We are excited to announce that Ottawa Innercity Ministries will be hosting a Coldest Night of the Year event in Nepean on Saturday February 25, 2023.


What is Coldest Night of the Year?

  • It is a winterrific family – friendly walk to raise money for OIM.  For those of you involved in Street Outreach, this means walking without a cart!

  • We plan on having an amazing experience. There will be a 2km & 5km route to walk.

  • On Event day you sign in at 4pm, with our launch ceremony at 5pm, then after the walk there will be a light supper and more entertainment.

  • Along the route you will find some entertainment stations such as Ottawa Firefighters, Starbucks and others.


Why are We Hosting this Event?

  • It is a new opportunity for OIM to bring in funds to fill our Street Outreach cart supplies, fill hampers for Door Outreach, buy supplies for Innercity Arts and help our Innercity Veterans Outreach and Support program.

  • It is also an opportunity to get the word out about the great work that OIM does.

  • Lastly it will be an opportunity for many to wear the OIM red vest as you walk through the Nepean community.
