5 Days for the Homeless Charity Event

Sun., Mar. 18, 2018 12:00 a.m. - Fri., Mar. 23, 2018 11:59 p.m.

Location: Nationwide

The Hill Business Students Society will be participating in the “5 Days for the Homeless” campaign for the ninth year. 5 Days for the Homeless is a national campaign that takes place across Canadian universities over a five day and night period. The campaign begins at 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 18th and concludes at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, March 23rd. Five University of Regina students will spend five days and nights experiencing temporary homelessness. During this week, participants forgo the use of common necessities such as showering, basic grooming and shelter. The food that is consumed by the participants must be donated to them by the public.

The mission of the 5 Days for the Homeless campaign is to raise awareness about homelessness in Regina and collect monetary donations for Carmichael Outreach. In 2017, the group raised $52,075, which was the highest 5 Days total of all participating universities!

This year's participants include:

Logan Gelowitz from the Faculty of Business Administration
Nicole Tryhorn from the Faculty of Business Administration
Natasha Labar from the Faculty of Arts, Human Justice major
Jordan Frederickson from the Faculty of Social Work
Isaac Lubiak from the Faculty of Education

There will be a number of fundraisers taking place throughout the course of the week including Charity rides at Wheelhouse Cycle Club, a burger night at Browns Social House, Lumberjax Axe Throwing and Downtown Donation Day. Be sure to come out and show the students your support!
