Colour Run

After nearly a year without a blog post I have finally made my website mobile/tablet friendly. I hear you sigh, I know it is inexcusable. I've sort of been concentrating on my Project 28 website and have neglected this my main site. So be it and here I am with a new mobile friendly site and a new blog posy.

You are probably aware that I seem to spend most of my time using my photography skills for one charity or another. That has not changed. Last weekend a friend roped me into shooting a colour run fundraising event for Letchworth Garden City Hospice. I jumped at the chance as a few days before I had attended a funeral where the deceased family could not praise the people at Garden City Hospice enough. I won't go into detail but it left me in awe of how a charity can have so mch of a positive lasting effect on a family in crisis.

So I duly turned up and chose to man the 'pink station'.

In the Pink

This is the objective of the fundraisers running a 2km circuit twice and subjecting themselves to colour and foam stations on the way round. They make a donation for the privilege!

Thumbs Up

Some have an alternative objective to avoid as much colour as possible - this competitor emerges from the pink station unscathed.

Warm up

 

Before the start some of the youngsters take the warm up seriously - others remain as stiff as a board.

Perhaps my favourite image from the day.

Blue Volunteers

The day could not run without numerous volunteers and a hell of a lot of organisation. It was a family fun day and most importantly raised funds for an unbelievable charity.
