This annual fundraiser is held each year at the University of Regina in conjunction with the Business Student’s Society at the Paul J. Hill School of Business. 5 participants sleep outside for 5 nights, giving up many luxuries such as cell phones, clean clothing, showers, and regular access to meals, in an effort to open the conversation about the causes of homelessness while raising funds for the day-to-day operations at Carmichael Outreach.
The 2018 Five Days for the Homeless was another roaring success, surpassing their goal of $50,000. This is the most raised by any school in the nine years that 5 Days has been around. We can’t begin to say how grateful, and proud, we are of all the students who worked together to make this a success!
This year, the 5D4H team has a new goal of $55,000 – the highest goal of any other competing school. We are so excited to have such an amazing team of dedicated individuals on board once again, and can’t wait to see how the week progresses. Join us from March 17 to 22 to wish the team luck, and help spread awareness about this important issue.
