St Barnabas Hospice set to host another sell-out Colour Dash with a twist

10th January 2018

St Barnabas Hospice launches Colour Dash with an exciting new twist to make 2018 the biggest, brightest and best yet

Following on from a successful year of Fundraising events for St Barnabas they have announced a new and exciting twist to last year’s incredibly successful Colour Dash. The twist comes in the form of the addition of Inflatables.

Events like this are crucial in helping raise the funds needed to continue caring and supporting over 9,000 people across Lincolnshire that are living with a life-limiting or terminal illness.

The Inflatable Colour Dash is the perfect opportunity to come together and show your support for St Barnabas. It is a bright and vibrant event that brings together the whole family, whether you run in memory of a loved one, or just to have fun. This 5k untimed fun run will see participants splattered from head to toe in environmentally friendly coloured powder paint, with brand new inflatable obstacles at each kilometre.

Laura Stones, Events Fundraiser for St Barnabas Hospice, said:

“The Colour Dash is back with a new and exciting twist! Lincolnshire’s biggest and best Colour Dash has just got better. Our untimed fun run will see participants splattered from head to toe in coloured powder, with brand new inflatable obstacles at each kilometre. After the huge success of previous Colour Dash events we are expecting another sell-out this year.

“Colour Dash is for all ages, and you don’t have to be a runner to take part! Whether you run, walk or dance your way round, you should feel proud that you are doing it for such a good cause.

“St Barnabas works tirelessly to ensure patients and their families make the most of every single second they share, regardless of how much time remains. The money raised from events such as the Inflatable Colour Dash enables this work to continue.”

The Inflatable Colour Dash will take place on Saturday 12th May at the Lincolnshire Showground, Grange-de-lings, Lincoln, LN2 2NA.
