Color Run Manchester: Fundraising for Save the Children

You may recall that last year I took part in the Color Run at the Etihad stadium in Manchester. It was awesome.

I had such a fantastic time that this year I've signed myself on once again. This time though B and I are going the extra mile by fundraising for Save the Children, who Color Run 2014 are sponsoring. If you've never seen or heard of the Color Run, or haven't had the pleasure of attending an event yourself check out some of my favourite snaps from last years event. They call it the "Happiest 5K on the Planet" and they aren't lying! It really is so much fun.

If you'd like to get involved and help an incredibly worthy cause, B and I have created our own fundraising page where you can donate, even if it's small, any amount can make a huge difference. If you do we will both be eternally grateful, leave a comment and let us know so that we can thank you properly! 
Please help us to support this amazing cause! Every year, a shocking 6.6 million children die before their fifth birthday, many of them from preventable causes like diarrhoea and pneumonia. Just £50 raised can either train a midwife in life-saving skills, feed 3 families for a month, pay for 15 mosquito nets, treat 140 children for diarrhoea, or buy 25 blankets to keep babies with pneumonia warm. If you can help Chivarlous and I reach our goal of just £100 (£50 each), no matter how small your contribution, you will be helping to save children's lives. Please donate here.

Have you taken part in a Color Run before? Are you doing this year's event?
