Dina Jobson, HARP’s Head of Fundraising said: “We are so excited to bring this brand new event, the first of its kind, to Southend. We hope that this fun and competitive dash will be a chance for people to get involved, fundraise and run in solidarity with people experiencing or at risk of homelessness in and around Southend.”

On average, HARP help around 1,000 local people every year to overcome or avoid homelessness.
