Cardboard and Camaraderie: Reggie's Sleepout-Ames a Success 

Despite rain and chilly temps, more than 1,000 people shared in the experience of sleepin​​​​​​​g overnight at Iowa State University's Jack Trice Stadium as part of the inaugural Reggie's Sleepout-Am​​​​​​​e​​​​​​​s.

The weather conditions only accentuated the plight of those in our community who don't have a warm, dry and safe place to live. Funds raised benefit three local organizations that work to end youth homelessness: YSS, ACCESS and ERP. Donations are still being accepted via the event website,



While the purpose behind Reggie's Sleepout is serious, the event offers many wonderful and unique opportunities for fun and excitement. View and download event photos via our album on Flickr.

Reggie's Sleepout-Ames Presenting Sponsor McFarland Clinic also created a fun video highlighting their involvement. Watch it now.
