Late Thursday night during the intermission of my PowerPoint presentation of Courage has many faces to the Quinte Photography Club, a woman in the audience told us about an event scheduled for 10am the following morning.
What: The Colour Fun Run 2015!
Where: In nearby Trenton, Ontario.
Who: More than 700 students from four local secondary schools would be running (or walking) a 5 km quadrangle facing a gauntlet of coloured powder thrown at them every 1km.
The purpose: to raise awareness and FUNDS for the Trenton Memorial Hospital’s purchase of a vital signs monitor.
The results: Increased awareness, great exercise, lots of fun, and $11,500 more than yesterday for the hospital!
