The Teesside Hospice Colour Run
Sunday 17th September Stewarts Park
Runners of all ages and abilities will 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.
The 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.
Early Bird registration ends July 31st

About Teesside Hospice and How the Colour Run and Other Events help
Care is for available for anyone suffering from a life-limiting illness. This includes conditions such as cancer, respiratory disease, heart disease, Parkinson’s, motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis and end stage dementia.
Teesside Hospice is here for you and your whole family. They offer a wide range of services, providing physical, emotional, social, psychological and spiritual support, ensuring respect and encouraging individuality, dignity and self-esteem.
Their holistic approach to care extends to relatives and friends both during their loved one’s illness and through bereavement.
They work in close partnership with all health and social care professionals involved in a person’s care, including GPs and district nurses.
The aim is to make sure patients and their families have access to specialist palliative care, in the belief that each person is entitled to dignity and choice within the best provision of care.
Each year it costs £2.7 million to provide services and support 3,000 people across Teesside. The local NHS funding we receive covers around a third of this expenditure, which means the rest of thework is funded by individuals, organisations, businesses and foundations who support .
All services are free of charge to patients, their families and carers. Over 140 staff and 450 volunteers help to provide specialist palliative care.
It costs Teesside Hospice £5,500 each and every day of the year to keep services running.
