It’s chaotic, it’s colourful and it’s back with some brand new features! Our biggest annual fundraiser, Rainbow Run-Bubble Fun 2023 returns to the Isle of Wight County Showground, Northwood, on Sunday 25 June.
Now in its fifth year, the 3km family fun run is getting a shake-up with a brand new video game theme. Giant inflatables, powder paint and foam blasters will be joined by video game-themed obstacles, so you can take on the run as your favourite video game character. And the fun doesn’t stop there! This year there’s also a new entertainment village featuring live music. Keep an eye on our events page and social media for more announcements.
Laura Haytack, Wessex Cancer Support’s Regional Fundraiser for the Isle of Wight, says Rainbow Run has established itself as the Island’s happiest 3K.
“It’s the perfect summer event for everyone; whether you want to compete against friends or colleagues, or you fancy a fun-filled afternoon with the family helping each other through the obstacles. However you take on Rainbow Run, you’ll leave with a huge smile on your face!
“Since it started, Rainbow Run has raised more than £100,000 for Island families living with cancer. Covid-19 put a huge pressure on cancer services and we know people are still living with missed diagnoses and delays in treatment. We’ve experienced an increasing demand for our services and your support means we can continue to be here for Islanders when they need us most.”
This year’s Rainbow Run is kindly sponsored by Wightfibre, which is committed to building a full-fibre broadband network across the Island.
There are four timeslots available, at 11am, 11.45am, 2pm and 2.45pm. There’s a minimum fundraising goal of £50 per person and you can set up a JustGiving page here. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
