Jim Simone is at it again! Help if you can!!!

Dear Friend & Supporter,

This year Dr. Jim Simone, a Harbor House honorary board member, is once again challenging himself in support of Harbor House. This summer he is competing in a series of events including: biking 260 kilometers on the Ho Chi Minh Trail, climbing the Peaks Challenge in Vermont where he will be running 50 miles on 6 peaks, and the Desert Rats race, running 147 miles from Grand Junction, Colorado to Moab, Utah. He has competed in many grueling events and has traveled the world in an effort to continually challenge himself, but more importantly, to raise funds for deserving charities. As in the past, all donations will be given to Harbor House’s “Run for Shelter” campaign.

Harbor House is a not-for-profit organization that provides comprehensive services to survivors of domestic violence and their children. Harbor House has been in existence for over 25 years, and the need for our unique services continues to grow. Unfortunately because of budget cuts and shifting governmental priorities, Harbor House funding has not increased proportionately.

In order to expand our services to meet the needs of our community, we are asking for your donation. Not only will your involvement sustain Dr. Simone’s efforts to complete this series of races, but your generous donation will also aid survivors of domestic violence in their own journey.

We ask that you indicate your level of support on the form below. Your interest and encouragement are sure to be a great inspiration to him. Harbor House appreciates your donation and support as well.
