A new event this Sunday, March 19, the Great Duluth Sweat Together will combine sauna culture and giving back.

The world record attempt (Most people taking a sauna in one city in a day) also benefits Life House.

The nonprofit supports homeless youth ages 14-24 with transitional housing, job coaching, and more.

“Our young people are with us for five to eight to 10 years,” Life House Executive Director Jordon Eunison-Chisti said. “Some come and go, but many of them, we are their family. We are their adults in their life, their trustworthy kind of caretakers.”

All of the net proceeds from the Great Duluth Sweat Together go to Life House.

“Those proceeds will go into all our programs, whether it’s our mental health and wellness program, our drop-in center,” Eunison-Chisti said. “All our funding goes directly to our young people. And so it’s either to support our staff who are supporting young people, or it goes into activities.”

The sauna party goes from 3-8 p.m. Sunday at the Endion Station Inn. There is a suggested donation of $10-20 to Life House.
