Five SFU students were profiled in today’s issue of 24 hours because of their efforts to raise awareness about youth homelessness and raise money for Covenant House. Diana Chan, Julian Legazpi, Garett Senez, Flora Leung and Robin Garcha will be spending 24 hours on the streets starting Saturday at 8am outside Library Square in downtown Vancouver.

“We’ll be sleeping in the street to try to get youth off the streets,” Senez said.
