The 5km sponsored fun run is now in it’s 6th year and will be returning to RAF St Mawgan in Newquay on Sunday, June 23. Tickets are now on sale and are expected to prove popular as last year’s event saw 1500 people take part and around £75,000 raised for the charity which runs three children’s hospices in the region including Little Harbour in St Austell.
Once again the event is being generously sponsored by Anns Cottage as well as each paint station being sponsored by additional local businesses.
Kiley Pearce, Events Fundraiser for CHSW is already excited for the return of Cornwall’s most colourful 5km; “Rainbow Run is all about having fun with your friends and family while getting covered in all colours of the rainbow. Having fun and creating memories is really important for the families that we support at Little Harbour so it feels very fitting that this event embraces all those things while raising vital funds for our hospice.”
Little Harbour provides short breaks and respite for local children with life limiting and life-threatening illnesses. The purpose-built hospice at Porthpean in St Austell is now supporting 130 children and their families from across Cornwall and Plymouth. It provides an opportunity for families to rest, make special memories while receiving expert care and support in a home from home environment.
The early bird offer giving 25% off tickets will be running until 1st April, at the reduced price of £15 for an adult anhttp://www.chsw.org.uk/rainbownewquayd £9 for a child. Anyone over the age of 5 can take part and people can run, jog or walk the 5km – it is not a race, it is about having fun!
