The 2016 Homelessness Marathon

Tune in to the 2016 Homelessness Marathon today from 3PM to 5AM MST! Every year, stations in cities across Canada take turns sharing local homelessness issues for the rest of the country to hear. Edmonton’s CJSR 88.5FM will be broadcasting the entire marathon, with our local stories running from 11:30PM-1AM MST.

So if you’re a night owl, you’ll hear about how the Highlands community is ensuring it is a welcoming neighborhood for the homeless. There will also be an interview with actors appearing in Boyle Street’s short film City Embers, a fictional movie about what life is like for homeless youth in Edmonton. Sam Leibel will tell you how you can support the Society for Safe Accommodations For Queer Edmonton Youth, and Marlene Orr is going to share how Ambrose Place is having a positive impact in the community!

Oh, and you can tune in online at by clicking right…here.
