The countdown is on! One month yesterday, I will have done the Colour Rush 5k course, with a group of friends, in order to raise money for Thyroid UK.
I’m a little nervous about it as my health is very up and down at the minute, but I will complete it. Continue reading “One Month to Go Until The Colour Rush for Thyroid UK”
A few weeks ago, I explained how I’d decided to fundraise for Thyroid UK again this summer. Last July, I completed The Color Run and raised £437.50 including gift aid. This year, I’ve set a modest target of £100 and am being joined by four team mates, for The Fun Colour Rush, which looks very similar to The Color Run, but has a cheaper entry fee as well as being much closer to where we live.
After letting Thyroid UK know, who were very thankful and appreciative for it, they offered to send us some free Thyroid UK vests to wear over our official Colour Rush T Shirts, as well as some temporary tattoos, wristbands and trolley keys, which was really kind of them.
We’re going to look so geared-up when we hit that start line!
The Colour Rush will be a real challenge for most of the team, due to various health conditions, but we’ll be supporting each other round the 5k course, which sees participants showered in a different coloured powder at each 1k, meaning they finish looking like a rainbow with big grins on their faces!

I have used BT MyDonate over JustGiving, as they give the charities a lot more of the money raised. JustGiving take a big chunk of what’s donated.
