On Saturday 13th August Carlos, Ellie, Emma and I donned our luminous orange running shirts and took part in the Cambridgeshire Colour Dash in aid of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice (EACH).

This was the first time the EACH Colour Dash had come to Cambridgeshire, welcoming 500 participants to run, walk, or skip their way around the 5K course.

Familiar with the concept of a Colour Dash, but having never actually been a part of one, we were buzzing with excitement for the day, and it certainly didn’t disappoint!

From the zumba inspired group workout at the beginning, the continuous multi-coloured paint showers around the track, right through to the immense colour party at the end – it was a great experience with laughter all the way.

As sponsors of the event, we also had a paint station on the course where the team created what can only be described as a ‘giant pink cloud’ to greet the runners on the first leg of the track. Safe to say, by the state of the team (and my car) they certainly got into their role as paint pirates!

This sold out event was all in aid of raising much needed funds for EACH and its work with children who have life-threatening conditions at their hospice in Milton, Cambridgeshire.

The EACH team hope to raise £20K from this event and if you’d like to make a contribution, please do so via their website and mention the colour dash in your reason for donation.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank the EACH team for a fantastic event and if you would like to see more photos and details of future colour dashes, please visit the EACH facebook page.
