Event description

Description

Sanctum Survivor is a city-wide fundraiser held May 30th & 31st, 2019. 10 local leaders in the community gain insight into homelessness through a 36 hour challenge. The goal of this fundraiser is to increase awareness and understanding of the many challenges faced by people who experience poverty, homelessness and chronic illness. During the 36 hours they will be faced with different challenges that have been created by people who have experienced homelessness to help bring understanding to the many difficulties faced by this population. Each task will aim to demonstrate certain challenges that society is often unaware of but are an everyday reality for those who are homeless with HIV here in Saskatoon. In an attempt to make this challenge as realistic as possible, Survivors will wear donated clothes and shoes and are not be allowed any personal belongings other then a phone to update the public on their journey.

At the end of the 36-hours, the Sanctum Survivor Gala is an event where public can hear about each survivor’s journey.

Collectively, this event will raise much needed funds, awareness and an understanding of issues faced by those living with HIV/AIDS in Saskatoon. Sanctum Care group is a non-profit charitable organization that opened Saskatchewans first HIV Transitional Care Home in November 2015. Since opening the doors, Sanctum Care Groups programming has expanded to include The Beehive (May 2017), a transitional apartment block for people living with HIV who require continued support in the community; HART (summer 2017), an HIV/AIDS Response Team aimed at increasing supports and services for individuals recieving care in hospital; and most recently Sanctum 1.5 (October 2018), a ten-bed care home that supports high-risk, HIV positive, pregnant women.

Please join us on Saturday, June 1st to hear from challenge participants and help to raise funds for this incredible organization.
