We’re hoping hundreds of people will join us for our ObstaColour Run in Woodbank Park, Stockport, on Sunday 15 July, to help to raise essential funds for local patients.
Participants in the 5km sponsored ObstaColour Run event will be showered with multi-coloured powder – a safe, environmentally friendly corn starch – as they walk, run or jog the route through Woodbank Park. They will also take on a series of inflatable obstacles throughout the untimed race.
Last year’s ObstaColour Run attracted around 2,000 people from across the city, raising £92,197.69 for St Ann’s.
We ran an ObstaColour Run last year and it was incredibly popular, selling out in just a matter of weeks. We’re really excited to be holding another ObstaColour Run this year, and we’re hoping that as many people as possible sign up to take part. It’s a really fun day out for all the family, and last year we had teams of friends and colleagues taking part together too. We need to raise around £20,000 each and every day to keep our services running so we’re dependent on the generosity of local people who come to events like this one. We couldn’t care for our patients and their families without this kind of support, and to be honest, what’s better than getting outside, joining in with something fun – and messy – raising money for a good cause, and having a laugh at the same time? Come and join us! Eamonn O’Neal, Chief Executive of St Ann’s Hospice
