Sign up to a colour­ful new way to raise funds

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A HOSPICE has launched its brand new colour­ful fundraiser.

Ren­nie Grove Hospice Care will com­bine the most pop­u­lar el­e­ments of its pre­vi­ous events, coloured pow­der paint and ob­sta­cles in Colour Blast: The Scram­ble.

The 5km ob­sta­cle course will see par­tic­i­pants take on more than 20 ob­sta­cles and run through five colour sta­tions.

Due to the na­ture of the event, Colour Blast: The Scram­ble is open to over 12s and is a per­fect team build­ing ex­er­cise for col­leagues or a great day out with a dif­fer­ence for friends.

Ren­nie Grove is also of­fer­ing Colour Blast – a 1km colour run with three colour sta­tions but with­out the ob­sta­cles, which is open to all ages.

Di­rec­tor of fundrais­ing and mar­ket­ing at Ren­nie Grove Hospice Care Gil­lian Bar­nett said: “Par­tic­i­pants will be show­ered with coloured pow­der, which is non-toxic, corn starch based and per­fectly safe, so it’s an ideal event for ev­ery­one to en­joy.

“It isn’t a timed race but a fun and amaz­ingly colour­ful way to raise funds and sup­port a char­ity on your doorstep.”

The event takes place at Penn House Es­tate, in Amer­sham, on Sun­day, Septem­ber 25.

On­line reg­is­tra­tion is now open with a lim­ited num­ber of early bird places at a re­duced price, with un­der fours go­ing free.

All par­tic­i­pants will re­ceive a T-shirt, a medal, and snacks and wa­ter at the fin­ish, which will be cov­ered by the en­try fee.

Those tak­ing part are en­cour­aged to raise spon­sor­ship for Ren­nie Grove Hospice Care, which sup­ports lo­cal pa­tients with life-lim­it­ing ill­nesses and their fam­i­lies by pro­vid­ing a range of ser­vices, in­clud­ing a 24 hour re­spon­sive Hospice at Home ser­vice.
