Online registration has now closed but you can still sign up on the day at our registration tent from 8.30am!

Can your school help the Dublin Simon Community?

It's that time of year again! The Dublin Simon Community Fun Run will take place on Saturday 4th of October 2014 in the Phoenix Park and we would like to get as much support as possible from schools across Dublin, Kildare and Wicklow.

Why Take Part?

The Fun Run is a great way to start the school year! It can be used for team building, giving students a short term fundraising and fitness goal while raising awareness of homeless issues and Dublin Simon Services at the same time. As well as being a fun day out, the Fun Run is the perfect opportunity for schools to support Simon's work with people who are homeless or at risk.

What Prizes are on offer?

There will be a perpetual trophy award entitled ‘Dublin Simon’s School of the Year’. The school with the highest sponsorship monies raised per participant will be awarded this prize. As always goodie bags will be given to all participants on the day. There will be plenty of spot prizes up for grabs too.

How to Participate?

Register your school now or call the Fundraising Team on 01-6715551. All we need is the lead teacher’s details together with a list of student Fun Runners names.

How Much does it cost?

This year the registration fee per school is €20. We have set the school fee collectively at only €20 to give students the opportunity to raise sponsorship monies needed to fund Dublin Simon Services. The suggested sponsorship amount per student is €50. Of course, we welcome sponsorships of any amount, no matter how little or large.

How to Fundraise for Dublin Simon?

Once your school is registered, we will post you out sponsorship cards for each student. Your school can also set up their own Sponsor Me page where you'll be provided with a link which your staff and students can email to friends and family requesting them to sponsor them online.
