Published 4th May 2017

Teesside Hospice Care Foundation based in Linthorpe, Middlesbrough was established in 1982 to enhance the lives of those suffering from life limiting illnesses in the Teesside region, free of charge.

The Teesside Hospice Colour Run is back for 2017. Taking place at Stewart Park, Middlesbrough on Sunday 17th September, the event is set to be another sell out following last year’s amazing success.

The fun run kicks off at 11am and will see runners of all ages and abilities, covered from head to toe in environmentally friendly powder paint, with a different colour for each station.

New for this year, the Hospice has introduced "bands on the run", to help keep runners motivated around the course. Before the event, crowds will be entertained and warmed up by Toni McGlone who runs Clubbercise Teesside. There will also be a variety of colourful accessories on sale at the event.

1,500 runners took part in last year’s Colour Run, which raised over £70,000 to support specialist palliative care at Teesside Hospice.

Fundraising Manager, Debbie Coulson, said ‘We are thrilled to be bringing the Colour Run back to Middlesbrough. The response to last year’s event was incredible! It sold out really fast and so we are encouraging people to book now to avoid disappointment. You can also make the most of our early bird offer before it ends on 1st July!’

Debbie added ‘This event is all about wearing your biggest smile, getting messy and raising cash for Teesside Hospice! It’s also a bright and brilliant way to get your friends and family to come together and do something fun before the summer ends.’

The Colour Run is sponsored by popular, local shoe retailer Charles Clinkard and is also supported by Teesside University, Hill Care: Care Home and Darlington Building Society, meaning that every penny raised will go directly towards providing care.

Managing Director, Charles Clinkard, said ‘Following the success of last year’s Colour Run, we are delighted to once again be supporting the event as it returns to Middlesbrough. The run was enjoyed by all and every penny raised went directly towards the incredible work done by Teesside Hospice, providing care and patient support to the local community. We hope that this year’s Colour Run will be just as successful, if not more!’
