Another Amazing Year for CNOY 2022 in Okotoks!
We want to give a HUGE shout out to everyone who participated or made a donation to support BCO and the Okotoks Food Bank in our community for CNOY 2022.
This year we raised almost $11,000 thanks to the outstanding efforts of 13 local fundraising teams and a grand total of 57 walkers! Right down to the tips of our frozen toes we are so grateful for all of their hard work and for all of the generosity you've shown us once again, Okotoks!!
Socially Distanced but United in the Spirit of Giving
This year all of our participants walked socially distanced routes through town as we near what we hope is the end of the COVID-19 pandemic in southern Alberta. We are very excited to return to the group walk format in CNOY 2023, when we can fully celebrate the community spirit that makes this annual fundraiser so important for BCO and the work we do to help local folks in need.
How to Donate
Missed the event this year? There's still plenty of time to make a donation through our official CNOY Okotoks web page!
We are incredibly humbled and so very grateful to the amazing team at Bar None Ranches for their heartfelt words and generous donation of $5,000.00.
Here is a peak into the beautiful message we received today ...
"It was our pleasure to be able to help with such a worthy charity! I am just so grateful that there are people like you and your organization in this world. Without people's hard work, compassion and time, these charities would not exist! Thank you🙏🏻"
