Dublin Simon Community have launched their 37th annual Simon Home Run.
The issue of homelessness and housing in Ireland has reached crisis point. Dublin Simon Community are looking for people to come out in support and join the race against homelessness.
They work hard to provide services to over 7,600 people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
Simon Home Run
The 5 mile (8k) run will take place in the Phoenix Park on Saturday 7th of March.
Everyone can take part, whether you're a walker or a jogger.
There'll also be lots of family fun on the day with entertainment and novelty prizes like fastest buggy across the line.
Plus, each registered runner will also be in with a chance to win a €1,000 cash prize!
Leinster and Ireland Rugby Player Ross Byrne was on hand to launch the event, saying:
“I am proud to be back on board for a third year as an Ambassador for the Simon Home Run. We are all painfully aware that homelessness in Ireland has reached crisis point and I would encourage as many people as possible to register for this year’s race to help thousands of vulnerable people and families close the door on homelessness for good.”
It's a great day out for colleagues, students and families alike.
