Kathryn Thomas this week launched the first ever Simon Home Run. The Irish television presenter is asking people to join the movement for homes, at a time when the homeless crisis is at unprecedented levels.
Organiser, John Sansome said:
“For the past 33 years, the Dublin Simon Community have hosted the Fun Run in the Phoenix Park. However, on 7th October 2017, as we come to the 34th year of the event, the homeless situation is the worst we have ever seen and we wanted the event to reflect the gravity of the problem.
Sansome continued, “To do this, we’ve changed the event to the #SimonHomeRun. We need people to join us and hit the pavement for the five mile run/walk; not just for fun but for Homes!
The Dublin Simon Community provide services to over 3,500 people in Dublin, Kildare, Wicklow and Meath.
To get involved in the movement for homes, register for the Simon Home Run today.
