Fifty fundraising heroes from St Mary’s Catholic Primary, Whitstable have signed up for the KM Colour Run to raise a record figure for their school.
The ambitious fundraising target will be used to give pupils access to a wide range of sporting opportunities and develop a love of sport.
Head teacher, Chris Wright, said: “We’re doing the KM Colour Run to raise £45,000 to £50,000 for an all-purpose sports field for the school.”
Event organiser Dominic Comins of the KM Charity Team said: “We are thrilled that St Mary’s are taking up the KM Colour Run challenge to encourage pupils’ interest in an active and healthy lifestyle."
He added: “I wish them the best of luck with their fundraising.”
Hundreds of participants including families will be showered with vivid coloured powders as they run, jog or walk along the 5K course on Sunday, June 11 at Betteshanger Country Park, near Deal.
Participants can use the event to raise money for any good cause of their choice through sponsorship. Ticket price includes sunglasses and KM Colour Run t-shirt to wear plus a medal to collect at the finish line.
