It’s nearly that time again, and #TeamCariad are very excited!
Who’d have thought throwing handfuls of powder paint at colleagues, err, I mean the passing runners all in the name of fundraising could be SO much fun!
The Welwyn Garden City based Hospice has been providing free palliative care and support to any adult, with a life-limiting disease in the Hertfordshire community since 1982. Part-funded by the NHS locally, the majority of income is from fundraising and with 2015 running costs of £4.9m, and a target of £2.9m to be found from charitable donations, the Colour Run 2015 is a valuable contribution to this figure.
2014 was Cariad’s first year of sponsoring the 3k marker station and of course we chose Cariad red, here’s the calm before the storm …
We’ve had our t-shirts printed again but runners are provided with a white t-shirt upon registration. You’re encouraged to wear old, white clothes for maximum effect when passing through the 5 colour stations, so that you can gather the rainbow and prove they’ve passed each marker. This is what the red station ended up looking like …
I think most of us were still finding red powder behind our ears and blowing it out of our noses a few days later! It’s a great event for all the family whether you run, throw paint or support from the side-lines. So why not don your trainers and join us for an active fun morning.
