There is less than one week left for people to get involved in the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices’ annual colour dash.

The fundraiser will be held on June 7 in Christchurch Park, Ipswich, and will see participants make their way around a 5km course while bystanders throw coloured powdered paint at them.

Registration for the event will close on Monday, June 1, and so organisers are calling on anyone interested in taking part who has not signed up to get their name down before it is too late

EACH fundraiser Patsy Johnson-Cisse said: “We’re all really excited to be hosting the EACH Colour Dash in Ipswich for the second year running. We’ve got more than 750 people already signed up and there’s just one week to go to book your space.

“Don’t miss this fun event, it really is one for the whole family to brighten up your Sunday.

“We’re also still on the look-out for marshals for the event, to be dotted around the course, cheering on our runners and steering them in the right direction.

“The event is so colourful and great to watch, the atmosphere on the day makes it so worthwhile to be involved in – so if you’re interested in finding out more we’d love to hear from you.”
