Colour Dashes

Last year our Colour Dashes raised an amazing £150,000 – this year they’re back and bigger and better than ever with even more dates available.

Taking part in your local EACH Colour Dash is a fantastic way to help raise valuable funds for us and have a great day out with family, friends and colleagues. Each dash is a short route which you can run, jog or walk whilst our Colour Pirates shower you in clouds of colourful powdered paint. At the end you can join in our paint party to celebrate!

The fantastic team at Go Vocal Media created the film below at our first ever Cambridgeshire Colour Dash. Take a look and see what to expect at our events next year!

    • Children like Lucy don’t get the opportunity to go to sleepovers or to their friends for tea, so the interaction she has at the hospice is priceless. Heather, Lucy’s mum
    • We arrived at the hospice feeling scared and alone. We had so many questions – they answered them all and more. Claire, Jacob’s mum
    • We are also supported by the 24/7 True Colours nurses and it’s so reassuring knowing we can call on them whenever we need support or advice Helen, William’s mum
    • Renee loves going to The Treehouse, but it’s great that care staff are also able to visit us at home too. Stacy, Renee’s mum
    • I didn’t realise hope was a gift until I became a mum. My little boy taught me many things and that was one of them Claire, Jacob’s mum
    • The play specialists are excellent and I also get inspiration from the activities they organise. Heather, Lucy’s mum
    • It’s been a great opportunity to meet other parents in a similar situation, something that doesn't really happen anywhere else. Helen, William’s mum
    • EACH helped us with coping mechanisms and special ways of remembering Stanley. Brad, Stanley's Dad
    • EACH supports families when they’re at their absolute lowest, helping them to come to terms with their child’s illness, losing them and beyond Brad, Stanley's Dad
    • EACH has helped us keep Stanley’s memory alive. And allows us to look to the future Brad, Stanley's Dad
    • EACH helps us to create lovely memories and has played an important part in all of our lives, not just Lucy’s. Heather, Lucy’s mum
    • I really love going to the hospice. I’ve made friends there and get to do loads of fun stuff. Renee
    • When we first heard about the hospice we were apprehensive because we didn’t know what to expect. When we got there we realised it was a lovely place where Renee would be well looked after, and we would be able to have a much-needed break. Stacy, Renee’s mum
    • I can’t imagine what it would have been like. Nobody should have to, every family should be offered the support we were, and are still getting Claire, Jacob’s mum
