Homelessness Marathon 2016

CFRC is proud to participate in this year's coast-to-coast Homelessness Radio Marathon with a special broadcast on Tuesday, February 23 that will include a live-to-air open mic at Martha's Table, 629 Princess Street, from 5-7pm.

Now in its 14th year, the Homelessness Radio Marathon is a collaboration of campus and community stations across Canada, creating dialogue and raising awareness of homelessness in our communities.

CFRC's broadcast begins at 5pm ET with an open mic at Martha’s Table, a non-profit, charitable organization providing low cost nutritious meals to those in need. CFRC welcomes members of the community, particularly those who are or have experienced being homeless, to attend and share their perspectives, songs, poems or stories on this important issue.

At 7pm ET, the broadcast moves to CFRC's studios for a special feature produced by the Aboriginal Voices program. From 8pm to 7am, CFRC will air events and features from other campus and community broadcasters participating in this year's Marathon, coordinated by CIVL in Abbottsford, BC.

To get involved, please join us at Martha's Table from 5-7pm on February 23, email [email protected], or tune in!
