ABOUT SLEEP OUT
It is a 24-hour event held from 10am - 10am which, raises money for the City of Oxnard Homeless situation. The event is held overnight to symbolize a Homeless person's long battle with Homelessness and lack of housing. This team-based event involves continuous walking intermixed with lots of fun activities such as the opportunity to participate in challenges. However, it also comes with a very important message - that together we can fight back against Homelessness and homeless situations, such as lack of housing, Addiction, Mental Health, and numerous other reasons society if forced into homelessness. We also have a Luminary Ceremony, where everyone is able to reflect on their life, and how homelessness may have touched them in some way. But most importantly, everyone is fundraising money for Homeless resources to work towards the creation of a permanent funding source for our cities fight against homelessness! In 2022, fundraising, recruitment and the event will be held at Oxnard High School August 6-7th . 2022
