Coldest Night of the Year


On February 24, 2018 staff from OCYA joined 300+ walkers in the Coldest Night of the Year walk through downtown St. John's. The OCYA team raised $700.00 towards the walk which raised approximately $40,000 for Choices for Youth, in support of Choice’s Outreach and Youth Engagement Centre.

We were delighted to be part of the walk with others who share our belief in supporting young people in our community.


The Office of the Child and Youth Advocate registered a team for the Coldest Night of the Year walk this year. Team Captain Jillian Freeman was joined by Jackie Lake Kavanagh, Andrew Mallam, Karen Gray and Jacob Kimball to fundraise and walk in this event in downtown St. John’s on February 25, 2017. We raised $1204.37. All funds for this event go to Choices for Youth. We thought this would be away of supporting the valuable work Choices does with vulnerable youth. Thanks to all who contributed to our efforts!
