In 2015 the hospice showered 1,500 people in a rainbow of powdered paint at Carlisle Racecourse; we hope you can be there for 2016!
“We wholly recommend the Colour Run to anyone thinking about taking part. You do not have to be an athlete and can take it at your own pace – there is no pressure at all put on you. The atmosphere was tremendous and the memories it has created for all taking part will be eternal.
“The event is well organised and the team from the hospice are there to support you if necessary. When we reached the end and got our medal we all felt such a sense of achievement. Do not think about it; do it! Sign up not and support a great cause in a great way!”
John McDowall, 2015 Colour Run fundraiser.
The vibrant event will see you, and thousands of other fundraisers, transformed from a blank canvas into a rainbow of colour as you all pass through the paint stations. At each station you will be showered in powdered paint, which is made from cornstarch and fully tested cosmetic dyes.
Katrina Sander, Community and Events Fundraising Manager, said “2016 is a special year for Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw as we celebrate our 25th Anniversary and the Colour Run is just one of the many ways the local community can join in the celebrations.
“As part of our 25th Anniversary Wishlist we would love to see 2,500 fundraisers covering themselves in powered paint at the event.”
The vibrant day of fundraising will not end at the finish line as we hops the bright and vibrant after party, This will provide you with the chance to dance the afternoon away enjoying the fantastic live entertainment and showering yourselves in even more paint.
The hospice 2015 Colour Runs in Carlisle and Kendal raised over £80,000 and we hope to exceed this amount in 2016. All of the money you raise helps the hospice make a difference every day.
