More Info....

 

Well, I have just been notified that I won the lottery!!!!..... That is, the lottery to enter the Bank of America Chicago Marathon on 13th OCtober 2013! I am running the marathon for a great little charity called the Galway Simon Community who do fantastic work in the local community by providing loads of support to people who have lost heir homes. This is an incredible charity that should serve as a role model for communities all over the world!

I have never run a marathon in my life.... nor a half marathon..... or a 10k...... come to think of it, I haven't run a 5k before either so this should be pretty interesting. I'd imagine there will be blisters involved... lot's of them....

Anyways, I could use all the support and encouragement I can get, so please help cheer me on (ehemm, with your wallets:)) and help me achieve my target of €4000 to help keep someone warm and fed next winter. Your help is really appreciated.

Galway Simon Community

4 REASONS TO SUPPORT GALWAY SIMON COMMUNITY

1 WE PROVIDE REAL HELP TO PEOPLE IN CRISIS. For many people in crisis, Galway Simon Community is the only light at the end of a lonely tunnel. The only way to get their lives back. They have hit rock bottom

They need a place to call home - we provide it. We currently have over 100 pople living in our housing projects and apartments.

They need a good meal - we provide it. Over the past 12 months, we have supplied more than 32,000 meals to those most in need.

2 WE ARE HELPING MORE PEOPLE THAN EVER BEFORE The financial crisis has brought many to their needs. Some have to choose between putting food on the table or paying the rent. These people are our friends and neighbours, their struggles hidden because they are not homeless - yet.

Galway Simon Community's Outreach service is there for people who need support to keep their homes or who are at risk of tenancy breakdown.

3 WE ARE IN THIS FOR THE LONG HAUL. We don't just help people and move on. Some of our accomodations are staffed 24/7 and we provide other support services to help them rebuild their lives. These include health, mental health and substance abuse treatment, as well as education and life skill courses. We also help people get back to work.

4 WE WORK TOWARDS ENDING HOMELESSNESS - FOR GOOD Galway Simon Community campaigns for changes to social policy and attitudes, using the unique insights we have gained through listening to those who have been homeless. We believe that homelessness is not an inevitable outcome for any person and we are working to make this a reality.
