Join Us… Under the Stars!

THE EVENT:  REGGIE’S SLEEPOUT – AMES

Register to participate in Reggie’s Sleepout-Ames, where you (and 1,000 of your closest friends) will sleep under the stars on the field at the Cyclone Sports Complex at Iowa State University. The event supports three organizations working to address youth homelessness in our community: YSS, Assault Care Center Extending Shelter and Support (ACCESS) and Emergency Residence Project (ERP).

You can participate as an individual, or get a team together. Ask family, friends and neighbors to donate to the cause. Then, bring a box, small tent (no stakes) and/or sleeping bag to set up camp for the night. There will be entertainment, activities, music, games and of course, the Boxed-In Design Contest.

Food and drinks will be served. (Outside food, snacks, gum and beverages will not be allowed. Exceptions: Those with food allergies or special meal requirements can bring their food and snacks, which will be stored in the event’s food tent.)

 Reggie’s Sleepout Ames is an alcohol-free event.
