CORNWALL – Organizers are gearing up for a third annual fundraiser to feed Cornwall’s hungry.

The Agape Center’s Coldest Night of the Year is happening Feb. 20, 2016.

“This event is important because it brings people closer to the issue of hunger here in our city,” said Agape Center Executive Director Alyssa Blais.

The goal is to raise $25,000 through a series of two, five and 10 kilometer walks through the city.

The Agape Center is hoping to have 180 walkers and 20 teams taking part – some are already signed up like the City of Cornwall.
