Sources Community Resources Society serves people living with poverty in White Rock. Your involvement in this walk impacts hundreds of lives in a positive way, helping build a bright future that once seemed out of reach.


Money raised from this event will be used to help fund Sources Homeless Prevention Programs which includes the Rent Bank and other (non-funded) activities under the Homelessness services umbrella.


Sources’ advocacy services help more than 5,000 people living in Surrey, White Rock, Delta, Langley and beyond who have low or no income to access income supports, medical benefits, disability benefits, affordable housing and short-term loans from Sources Rent Bank. Because they received help from our homeless prevention services, more than 1,000 people avoided homelessness through housing subsidies, landlord mediation, loans for rent and utility payments and more.


While the long-term goal is to secure sustainable funding for the services, the short-term goal is to raise $70,000 as a result of the Coldest Night of the Year walk.


Now in its third year, this event sees participants complete either a 2km, 5km or 10km walk along White Rock beach after raising funds through pledges.


Last year SOURCES raised over $55,000 for homeless prevention programs through the walk.


Many thanks to all those who are participating, donating and supporting this event!
