REN­NIE GROVE HOS­PICE CARE

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - COMMUNITY -

REN­NIE Grove Hos­pice Care launched a new and ex­cit­ing chal­lenge this year – Colour Blast: The Scram­ble.

The main event con­sists of a 5km ob­sta­cle course that will have par­tic­i­pants clam­ber­ing over climb­ing frames, tack­ling tun­nels and crawl­ing un­der camo nets, all the while be­ing blasted with brightly coloured pow­der at var­i­ous points along the way.

The head­line spon­sor for this year’s fundrais­ing event is Ori­gin Global, a fam­ily-run man­u­fac­tur­ing com­pany based in High Wy­combe. Spon­sors of last year’s Muddy Mucker, Ori­gin has come back for more phys­i­cal chal­lenges and en­tered a team into this year’s Colour Blast: The Scram­ble.

Sales and mar­ket­ing di­rec­tor for Ori­gin Ben Brock­lesby said: “As proud spon­sors of Ren­nie Grove’s Muddy Mucker event last year, we are al­ready gear­ing our­selves up for the rain­bow of ob­sta­cles that lie ahead.

The Muddy Mucker was such an in­spir­ing event for the Ori­gin fam­ily to be in­volved in, ev­ery­one had an amaz­ing time and we can’t wait to par­tic­i­pate again this year in Colour Blast: The Scram­ble.”

Last year Ori­gin en­tered a 59-strong team made up of em­ploy­ees and fam­ily mem­bers and raised an in­cred­i­ble £1,850 for Ren­nie Grove Hos­pice Care.

Ben added: “This will no doubt be one of the tough­est, yet ex­hil­a­rat­ing ob­sta­cles the team will face, but know­ing the money we raise will be used to im­prove the lives of fam­i­lies deal­ing with cancer and other life-lim­it­ing ill­nesses, makes it all worth­while.

"As a com­pany we pride our­selves on liv­ing and breath­ing our in­ter­nal val­ues. With fam­ily be­ing at the fore­front of how we op­er­ate as a busi­ness, we are happy to hear that there will also be a 1km colour fun run, open to un­der 12s, mak­ing this the per­fect event to unite fam­i­lies and chil­dren for a day that cer­tainly prom­ises to be colour­ful!”
