CKXU broadcasts “7th Annual Homelessness Marathon”

CKXU 88.3 FM, Southern Alberta’s only campus-community radio station, will be broadcasting live the “Homelessness Marathon: Radio Reflecting on Ending Homelessness Tomorrow.

The Homelessness Marathon is an annual 14-hour radio broadcast featuring the voices and stories of homeless people. The Homelessness Marathon features live call-ins all night long via a national toll-free number (1-866-594-7729).

This year’s Homelessness Marathon will broadcast live from the streets of Montreal on Monday, February 23rd, starting at sunset and running all night long until sunrise on Tuesday, February 24th.

The seventh annual Homelessness Marathon will once again serve up 14 hours of people-powered radio, broadcasting this year from outside of the Native Friendship Center. With the goal of being a consciousness-raising event, the Marathon will provide an opportunity for homeless people and their supporters to take to the airwaves, and allow a nationwide discussion on homelessness issues and possible solutions.
