The popular family fundraiser, featuring giant inflatables and colour stations, will this year include 2 new bubble stations, making it more chaotic and colourful than ever before!
Rainbow Run – Bubble Fun will take place at Sandown Airport on Sunday 18th July and tickets go on sale today (Friday, April 30th).
Now in its third year, the 3km event has so far raised more than £70,000 for Islanders affected by cancer, with nearly 2,000 people taking part. Last year’s event was cancelled because of Covid.
Wessex Cancer Trust’s Regional Fundraiser, Lorraine White, said:
“Rainbow Run is back and, with bubbles added to the mix, the 40th birthday edition is set to be our best yet!
“The combination of giant inflatables, rainbow-coloured powder paint and an amazing atmosphere always makes it such a popular event and we hope, after such a difficult year, the Island will be more than ready for some Rainbow Run fun.
“Help us celebrate our 40th birthday in style by walking, running or dancing your way through the Island’s happiest 3k while raising money for Island families living with cancer.”
The event, which is once again sponsored by ARID Design and Management Consultants, will also include live music, food vans and a licensed bar.
Entry is now open and you can sign up at www.wessexcancer.org.uk/event/rainbow-2021.
All participants will receive a medal for taking part and those who raise more than £50 in sponsorship by 18th June will become star fundraisers, receiving a branded T-shirt to wear on the day.
