Sign up to the first ever SIMON HOME RUN
Get your company involved in the movement for homes!
As Dublin Chamber Charity Partner for 2017 & 2018, we’re asking Chamber members to get behind our first ever Simon Home Run.
For the past 33 years, the Dublin Simon Community have hosted the Fun Run in the Phoenix Park.
However, this 07 October 2017 as we come to the 34th year of the event the homeless situation is the worst we have ever seen. There is a need and an urgency to not only raise essential funds for homes but to also show solidarity with the thousands adults and children who are, as we speak, trapped in the despair of homelessness. We a need a change in direction…we must do more!
To do this, Dublin Simon have changed this year’s event to the Simon Home Run. They are asking you to hit the pavement and come together, not just for fun but for Homes! We hope that the strong message for homes will inspire people to join the movement against the homeless epidemic and turn up to the Phoenix Park on 07 October in your thousands.
The Simon Home Run will retain much loved qualities such as the five mile run/walk, entertainment, food and kids activities. However, additional happenings on the day will reflect the new event.
To speak to one of the Simon team about getting involved and organising a fun and meaningful day out, please contact JenniferKitson@dubsimon.ie.
The gravity of the housing and homeless crisis, as well as the level of response that’s required from Dublin Simon Community to meet the unprecedented need for accommodation and support, requires this year’s event to top all others; and for that we need your help.
