Joe Zukewich

I'm a 3rd year at the U of W studying conflict resolution studies. I have been involved with 5 days since the begging of the year having ran a Smash Brother's Tournament. I am hoping that this experience humbles me and helps others see why helping programs like RAY is crucial into making our city a better place to live.

Jacob Sawchyn

Hello! My name’s Jacob Sawchyn, I am in my third year and I double major in Environmental Science and Biology. This is the first time I’ve been a sleeper for 5D4H, ever since I saw the sleepers in action last year I knew I was going to get involved next year. I know it will definitely be a challenge, but I’m ready and excited to do some good for the less fortunate!

Devin Woodbury

My name is Devin Woodbury and I am a 4th year student graduating (this Spring) with a Bachelor of Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing. This is my first year sleeping outside for 5 Days or taking part in the campaign. However, last year I was around a bit for emotional support. (haha) Overall, I'm feeling good about doing this= and I think will be an interesting experience.
