Rain fails to stop play as hundreds of you get colourful at our Colour Run, raising a magnificent £17,500 for local children and families.
The weather may have been dismal on Saturday but our amazing supporters didn’t let that stop them from making our Colour Run the most colourful event in town! Despite the rain and cold, you turned out in your hundreds to run through a rainbow of colour and raise a fantastic £17,500 for the local children and families we support.
It was an absolutely brilliant day and we’re so grateful to everyone who came along to get colourful with us and who raised so much - more than £10,000 in sponsorship alone!
Huge thanks too to headline sponsors Charlesworth Business Growth Services, colour station sponsors Covea, Principle, Huddersfield Giants, Shepley Spring, Elland Round Table and E3 Recruitment plus Event Equipment Hire and Holme Valley Mountain Rescue. And of course, to our wonderful team of staff and volunteers who made sure the day went with a swing!
With their support, we have been able to keep event costs down and ensure a whopping £17,500 will go towards helping us support the families who need our care
When the whole community comes together like this, it means such a lot, not just to us but to our families too. And it makes for a really magical day, whatever the weather throws at us!
