Finally, after wayyyy too much anticipation, The Color Run™ has made it to Australia and I can tick off one more thing on my bucket list. I’ll be heading to the Gold Coast to participate on the 14th of April with some girls from boot camp.
Thousands of people dressed in white will be heading out along the 5km course to come out the other end wildly colourful. Branded as the happiest 5km on the planet, the event is open to all ages and abilities, so bring your friends, partner, family (even Nanna! Her hair will look incredible afterwards) and come out and be active. Exercise and an abundance of bright colour – it’ll be good for your body AND soul.

While I’m super excited for the chance to dress all in white and go for a 5km run with my friends while volunteers throw coloured powder at me, there’s more to it than that. For the Gold Coast, the major beneficiary is The Ponting Foundation, a brilliant charity dedicated to young Australians with cancer. It contributes to a number of other cancer organisations, funds research and supports the families.
My friends and I (in our team dubbed “Colour for the Dollar”) will proudly be raising money for the Ponting Foundation. If you’d like to make a donation (no matter how small – it’s all much appreciated) please click the link below.
