FARGO—It's about to get really cold out there, but some some people will be freezing for a good reason.

Cass County Sheriff Jesse Jahner and Clay County Sheriff Mark Empting will be sleeping outside to help raise awareness for veterans and the local homeless population.

They will be in a tent at the Moorhead American legion post 21 tomorrow night for one of the Frostival events.

People are welcomes to stop by and donate cold weather gear.

With expected highs to be the negatives, the sheriffs tell us they are most definitely going to bundling up.

"This is a great cause to be out for. You take a look at what our veterans have done for us over the years, they've spent many nights away from their home and away from their families. This is just one night we're able to do this," said Jahner.

They will be just two of the many participating in the 44 hour freezing for a good reason event.
