Jessica’s Rainbow Run and Fun Day
On Saturday 19th May we will hold our annual event, Jessica’s Rainbow Run and Fun Day. This will be the 7th year of the event and we hope to make it even more special than ever. We have more stalls, food vendors, games and entertainment than ever before.
This 1 mile walk/run for children of all ages was thought up by Harry’s twin, Jessica, when she so desperately wanted to join us in our running escapades. At the time she was too young to undertake a long run such as a 5k so instead of waiting until she was old enough, she thought of Jessica’s Rainbow Run… Where any child of any age can take part, even in a pushchair and receive a medal and goody bag on completion…
Last year we had over 250 kids taking part and we would love to smash this amount this year.
Tickets can be purchased at https://helmtickets.com/events/1020/jessicas-rainbow-run-and-fun-day
We are also encouraging children to raise sponsorship money this year, to purchase memory boxes. The Memory Boxes are given to children when they register with us, they include books relevant to their circumstances, memory bracelet, tissues, notepad and pencil. We have devised a colouring sheet for the children to complete as they raise money, please download here.
