Annual Macedon Ranges Health Colour Run a huge success
21 October 2018
The fifth and final Macedon Ranges Health Colour Fun Run & Walk was an outstanding success this year with over 600 participants and 100 volunteers taking part in the event. The community have embraced this event and are such enthusiastic participants. Kelly and Lou from Change It Up Personal Training spent some time stretching and warming the participants up and the weather cooperated with the sun shining.
Kelly Milne Macedon Ranges Health Community Engagement Manager said "For this event to have run for five years and had such continued enthusiasm and support from the community is incredible. The Colour Run provides a great day out for the family whilst encouraging healthy, active lifestyles and social inclusion. Although the Colour Run & Walk in Gisborne is retiring we cannot wait to share with the community the new event in the New Year”.
This event could not happen without the financial support of sponsors and the amazing team of volunteers. Major sponsors this year were the Bendigo Bank and Neal Street Medical Clinic. Volunteer groups who ensure the event remains incident free but still fun included the Mens Shed, Live4Life Crew, Gisborne Scouts, Gisborne Thunder Swimming Club, Gisborne Church of Christ, Bendigo Bank, Rotary and the SES. We also had many individuals and MRH staff contribute to the success of the event.
