SECOND ANNUAL “COLOUR MY FOUNDATION” TO HAPPEN IN AUGUST
The St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation is pleased to announce that their second annual colour run titled “Colour My Foundation” presented XS-IV Boardshop, will happen on Saturday August 27th at Woodlawn Regional Park.
This super fun, bright and happy 5km Walk/Run is an interactive family event aimed to raise money and to have fun. All funds raised will go towards a new Fetal Heart Monitor for the OBS Department at the St. Joseph’s Hospital.
As the participants run the 5K, they will be showered 6 separate times by a different vibrant colour which is food-safe and eco-friendly! Registration and volunteer sign up will start online on Tuesday May 2nd at www.colourmyfoundation.com. Anyone can participate in this exciting event; young and old, fast runners and slow walkers, everyone is welcome. While this is a fun race and it will not be timed, serious runners are welcome too. If people are interested in participating, but do not wish to do the 5K, the SJHF will be looking for over 75 volunteers at this event.
Upon registration, participants will receive a T-Shirt, a pair of sunglasses, a bag of colour powder, and a pledge form so they can start raising money for this wonderful and worthwhile cause.
The first annual “Colour My Foundation”, which was in August of 2015, brought in over $60,000 and had over 450 participants. This year, the Foundation is looking to add even more exciting components to the event including live entertainment and vendors. The St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation is excited to be bringing this new world-wide fitness craze back to Estevan once again!
