‘Go Bright for Sight Colour Run’ returns to Droitwich

Published:  10 May, 2016

The Go Bright for Sight 5K Colour Run returns for the second time on Saturday 25 June at Droitwich Lido Park. Starting off dressed in white, participants can run, jog, walk or dance their way through the paint stations. Everyone is fully covered in paint and smiles by the time they reach the finish line, having raised money for local sight loss charity Sight Concern Worcestershire.

Fiona Blake, fundraising manager for the charity, says, “We had such a memorable time last year. We’re excited about painting even more people red, blue, green and purple as they pass through our Paint Stations en route. We’re delighted that Fortis Living are joining us again as Blue Paint Station sponsors and we are thrilled to welcome our new Red Paint Station sponsor, AKW. “

Sight Concern is asking all participants to raise as much sponsorship as possible to help its work, supporting local blind and partially sighted people to lead independent and fulfilling lives. Enter online at: www.sightconcern.co.uk/colour-run or call 01905 332 902. Tickets must be booked in advance.
