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 2019 Five Days for the Homeless was another roaring success, raising over $58,000 and beating their $55,000 goal! This is the most raised by any school over all the 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 is the 10th anniversary of the 5 Days campaign, and we look forward to seeing this team of devoted students and partners strive towards their new goal of $60,000, and starting a conversation about poverty and homelessness in our community.
