The Homelessness Marathon is an annual 14-hour radio broadcast featuring the voices and stories of homeless people from around the
United States The Homelessness Marathon features live call-ins all night long via a national toll-free number. The Homelessness Marathon
is available for free to all non-commercial radio stations.

The 12th Annual Homelessness Marathon will originate from Pass Christian, Mississippi. The broadcast will start at 6 p.m., central time (8 pm in Boston), on Monday, February 23rd and end at 8 a.m., central time, on Tuesday, February 24, 2009. Pass Christian is next door to Waveland, MS, which the Army Corps of Engineers officially designates as the "Ground Zero," where Hurricane Katrina came ashore. We call it the "other" Ground Zero, because it's the one that didn't get the attention (or the multi-trillion dollar response) that was given to the Ground Zero in New York.

In our hometown, you can listen on the radio from 8:00 pm to 8:00 am on 88.1 FM, WMBR, Cambridge. Or visit us online at www.wmbr.org.
