Sources Community Resource Centre’s annual fundraiser set for Feb. 20.

Sources Community Resource Centre’s annual Coldest Night of the Year fundraiser is just a few months away, and event organizers are seeking participants interested in taking part.

The event – which includes two, five and 10-km walks in more than 80 cities across the country, including White Rock, Surrey and Cloverdale – is set for Feb. 20 at 4 p.m. Sources is seeking participants to join a team and help raise funds through donations, with all funds raised locally going towards Sources’ homelessness-prevention services. This year, the organization aims to raise $70,000; last year’s event raised more than $51,000.
