First National Coast & Country has stepped up to the plate and become the major sponsor of the Kiama Colour Fun Run.
This year, the new local charity, Ceili Inc, is to benefit from the colourful event.
“Our staff were involved in it last year, and they said it was a tremendous day,” says First National Coast & Country’s Terry Digger.
“We thought it was a great way for us to get on board, support a great charity and have fun with the town.”
The First National Coast & Country Kiama Colour Fun Run/Walk will provide a brilliant 5km colour of fun along the walkway around Kiama Harbour, the Blowhole and Surf Beach.
The first colour run took place in the USA in 2011 and the craze has since spread across the globe. The colour aspect is adapted from the Hindu Holi Festival or Festival of Colours, where participants are covered in coloured powder.
“You can walk, crawl, jog or run; whatever takes your fancy,” says the event’s instigator Susan Hawley.
“Wear white and be prepared to be covered in a canvas of colour at our colour stations along the way.”
She wants to thank the other sponsors, Solutions 4 Wellbeing, Kiama Hello World and Zoe’s School of Dance.
All entry fees will be donated to Ceili Inc, a newcharity providing assistance to local women suffering financial hardship through death or potentially life threatening illness.
