The 7th annual 5 Days Campaign has begun, we do encourage you to join the Dalhousie Commerce Society in supporting and fundraising for youth in need through our 5 Days Campaign!
5 Days is a national campaign where students raise funds and awareness for homeless youth by sleeping outside and only eating food that is donated. This year our goal is to raise
$15, 000, during the month of march with your help!
Support Halifax Youth by sweating out at SPINCO on March 16th and ride to support our 5-Day campaign. The event will begin at 8:30 pm but please arrive 15 minutes early to register.
Tickets are $15, there are a limited number of bikes available. First come, first serve!
This event is open to all Dalhousie students.

Come join the 5 days crew at the University Club on March 27th for Karaoke night in support of 5 days campaign! Entrance is by donation with all proceeds going to help under-supported youth in the HRM. Prizes for the top fundraiser and so much more.
5 Days is a national campaign run by the Canadian Association of Business Students that strives to raise awareness and donations for members of society that are at risk of or experiencing homelessness.
All is done with the goal of sensitizing and educating the public on one of the major problems in this country. Donations raised are given to local shelters and programs to support their services within the community.
The Dalhousie Commerce Society will be partnering with Phoenix Youth Programs in Halifax for the seventh year in a row!
At Phoenix, we believe that people matter. All people. We all have the right to respect, dignity, support, and the opportunity to thrive.
Since 1987, Phoenix has been dedicated to supporting youth and contributing to a vibrant community. Phoenix’s ten locations in Halifax, NS provide a continuum of care for youth ages 11-24 and their families. We offer important services and programs including shelter, food, housing support, health care, parenting support, recreation, education and employment services, and clinical therapy.
Our team of caring professionals recognize that each person who comes to us has individual needs as well as strengths. People are the leaders in their own lives; Phoenix is a leader in supporting them.
