Children’s Hospice South West is encouraging people to wear all the colours of the rainbow and help raise vital funds.

Its ‘Rainbow Run Your Way’ fundraising event takes place on June 19 to 20 and anyone can get involved by doing their own brightly-coloured sponsored activity.
“Whether it’s a run, walk, jog, cycle, swim, hop, skip or jump, as long as it’s colourful, the choice is yours,” said Kiley Pearce, event fundraiser.

Last year, the charity’s traditional Rainbow Runs were cancelled due to the pandemic. Instead, the event went virtual and around 2,000 people raised an incredible £100,000

The event is free to enter and if participants can raise more than £15 they will receive a special Children’s Hospice South West 30th anniversary medal. 
The colourful fundraiser, which takes place at the start of national Children’s Hospice Week, is kindly being sponsored by Ann’s Cottage and The Exeter.
