Thousands gather in the Phoenix Park for the Simon Home Run
Dublin Simon Community would like to say a huge thank you to everyone that joined us to take part in the Simon Home Run on Saturday 6th October. We were delighted to have over 2,000 runners, walkers and joggers of all ages gather in the Phoenix Park.
Concerned Simon supporters from across Dublin and beyond, took part in the event to stand in solidarity with those who are being devastated by the homeless crisis and raise vital funds to help provide homes.
Speaking at the Simon Home Run, Sam McGuinness from the Dublin Simon Community said; “The Simon Home Run is more than just a fundraiser for us. It’s about raising awareness for the thousands of adults, children and families who are currently being impacted by the homeless and housing crisis we’re faced with. All of the funds raised today will go towards rebuilding the lives of all of the people we help on a daily basis. I would like to thank all of our volunteers, clients and supporters who came out in force today to support us and help make a statement for all of those impacted by the crisis.”
There was also plenty of fun on the day for participants and families with live music, food, face painting from the 98FM Thunders and the Deutsche Bank Kids Zone.
