SleepOut Challenge - A Million Nights of Courage
For 1 night we challenge you and your family to leave your bed behind and experience a little of what homeless people all over Canada endure every night of the year (and for piece of mind you can do this from within the safety and security of your own home) whilst also donating to our charity to help end youth homelessness.Register here →
