September’s Charity: Teesside Hospice

Oct 27, 2016

For September’s charity of the month I joined thousands of fellow-runners in the Middlesbrough Colour Run event to support Teesside Hospice.

Colour Run events have seen a surge in popularity lately but this was the first that I’ve had the opportunity to participate in. I went in with high expectations and wasn’t disappointed, thoroughly enjoying a casual 5k jog and ended up covered head-to-toe in vibrant powder paint.

Teesside Hospice are a local charity in my area and (in their own words) they “exist to enhance the quality of life for those suffering from cancer and other life limiting illnesses”.

To support the work of Teesside Hospice you can make a donation on their website –

A nice little suprise followed the day following the event as myself, Amy and our puppy were featured in the Teesside Gazette’s write-up of the event.
