FANCY do­ing some­thing a lit­tle dif­fer­ent this Hal­loween?

Michael So­bell Hos­pice is rais­ing money for its spe­cial­ist care cen­tre with a fun, spooky colour run.

The race will see par­tic­i­pants cov­ered from head to toe in ghoul­ish coloured pow­der as they run, jog or walk along the route, and will have prizes on of­fer for the per­son dressed in the best cos­tume!

En­trants will start and fin­ish at the hos­pice in North­wood on Sun­day Oc­to­ber 30.

The event will see run­ners tak­ing on one, two or three laps of the ap­prox­i­mately 2km-long course and there will also be a ‘mini’ dash of 2km for chil­dren.

Ophe­lia Cham­ber­sHenry, Michael So­bell Hos­pice’s events and com­mu­nity fundrais­ing man­ager, said: “This year, we wanted to give our Colour­dash a fun Hal­loween theme for halfterm.

“We’re invit­ing all par­tic­i­pants to come along in fright­en­ing fancy dress and there will also be a pump­kin-carv­ing com­pe­ti­tion and a prize for the best-dressed per­son.

“If ev­ery en­trant raises just £50 in spon­sor­ship for the char­ity, this will make a huge dif­fer­ence to the over­all funds raised from the event and in turn will help sup­port the vi­tal work tak­ing place at Michael So­bell Hos­pice, in caring and sup­port­ing fam­i­lies in our lo­cal area when they need it most.”

En­try costs £20 for adults, £10 for chil­dren and £50 for fam­i­lies (two chil­dren and two adults). En­ter on­line at www. m i c h a e l s o b e l l h o s p i c e.
