CKUT Homelessness Marathon Feb 20, 5pm - Feb 21, 7am
THE 2013 MARATHON went down this past Wednesday and Thursday.
The eleventh annual Homelessness Marathon this year served up 21 hours of people-powered radio, broadcasting this year from multiple cities across Canada and hosted by 12 stations. With the goal of being a consciousness-raising event, the Marathon will provide an opportunity for homeless people and their allies to take to the airwaves, and allow a nationwide discussion on homelessness issues and possible solutions.
