Rainbow Run, which is taking place on Sunday 25th June to raise money for Islanders affected by cancer, has been given a new lease of life with its new video game theme and jam-packed entertainment village – but it may be our last if participants don’t raise sponsorship for their runs.
Brand new obstacles on the 3km course, including a fabulous optional slip ‘n’ slide, live music and event sponsors, Wight Fibre, on site with their WightFibre bus, will make the Island’s happiest 3k a sure hit to kick off summer.
But if we’re to keep hosting the event, ALL runners need to raise their minimum sponsorship of £50.
Laura Haytack, our Regional Fundraising Manager, said:
“Rainbow Run is one of our most popular events on the Island every year and we don’t want it to be our last. The cost of the ticket covers the costs behind putting the event on, so without sponsorship we can’t raise what we need for Islanders affected by cancer.
“We’re thrilled to be giving Rainbow Run a shake-up with a video game theme and a giant entertainment village, packed with a full day of fun for all our incredibly supporters. After all, we wouldn’t be able to offer to support we do without everyone taking part and raising sponsorship.”
An entire entertainment village this year means a whole lot more fun for runners and spectators, packed with activities and games. Attendees can enjoy live music from Ear Candy and Platform One band, The Bandits. Award-winning entertainer, AJ, will also be performing and is one not to miss.
Tracey’s Facepainting will be offering free facepainting, while Adam Art will be offering people their own personalised caricatures. There’s also lots more to be announced!
