Posted By on Tue, Feb 15, 2011 at 5:25 PM

Community Radio station 91.3 KXCI will be broadcasting the 14th Annual Homelessness Marathon from Wednesday, Feb. 23 at 6 p.m. to Thursday, Feb. 24 at 5 a.m.

The Homelessness Marathon is a nationally syndicated radio event, broadcast overnight. The Homelessness Marathon features call-ins from homeless people across the nation who share their stories of hardship and hope.

Every year, the broadcast brings to light some of the common issues surrounding homelessness.

This year's host city will be Kansas City, Missouri.

For those who may wish to participate, there are two call-in numbers:

Anyone may call 877-NOBODY-8 (877-662-6398), while people who are homeless, formerly homeless or afraid they're about to be homeless may also call 866-LEFT-OUT (866-533-8688).
