We are delighted that Team Optima, represented by Rea, Jo and Caitlin, successfully completed the Beaumond House Community Hospice Rainbow Run on 17th June.
The event was a 5k fun run with a colourful twist! As runners followed the route they passed through clouds of "environmentally friendly" powdered paint, which were generated at a number of stations along the way.
Caitlin, the youngest member of the team, said that the paint stations were her favourite part of the run. She also really enjoyed getting involved in the paint fight at the end of the run!
As well as being lots of fun, the Rainbow Run was to raise money for Beaumond House and Team Optima were able to contribute a total of £165.
We’d love to raise more money for Beaumond House Community Hospice. You can help by visiting Jo’s JustGiving page to make a donation.
