Hospice Rainbow Run back by popular demand

Following the huge success of St Richard’s Hospice’s previous sell-out Rainbow Runs, the local charity is offering people a further opportunity to take part in a colourful fun run.

St Richard’s Hospice’s third Rainbow Run will offer 2.5km and 5km routes and will take place on Sunday 10th July at the new University of Worcester Lakeside Campus, previously known as Top Barn Activity Centre. Places on the fun run/walk are open to anyone aged 8 or over, but must be booked in advance.

Turn up in your oldest and whitest sports kit and prepare to run, walk, skip or dance around the route while getting showered with colours of the rainbow. The event is not a timed race; the aim is to have fun with your friends, family and work colleagues and to finish with a smile, while raising funds for your local hospice.

The St Richard’s Hospice Rainbow Run is kindly sponsored by Open GI, Worcester based insurance software specialists. Further opportunities are still available for local businesses who are interested in sponsoring a station. Please call Jodi Brandwood on 01905 763963.

Jodi Brandwood, Events and Challenges Fundraiser at St Richard’s Hospice, said; “We’re delighted to be able to offer our third Rainbow Run. Our previous events have been incredibly popular and many of those who took part have already signed up to next month’s event. The money raised goes towards funding specialist care and support for those at the end of their lives, so this is a day of fun with a serious message.”

Chris Guillaume, from Open GI, said; “We are delighted to sponsor the Rainbow Run as part of our 2016 partnership with St Richard’s Hospice. It promises to be a great event for all ages and we encourage everyone to get involved and support the fantastic work being done by the hospice.”

Dogs are not allowed to participate and children aged 8-16 must be accompanied by an adult. The event start will be staggered from 11am to take into consideration the safety of all participants.
