6 Aug: NI Children's Hospice Sparkle Dash

Volunteers needed to help at this fun event

Shine and Sparkle at the 2017 Sparkle Dash 5k in aid of Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice!

Fancy being generously doused in a rainbow of sparkling coloured powders all for a brilliant cause? Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice is organising its first ever Sparkle Dash on Sunday, August 6 and are seeking to recruit up to 1500 participants. This is a family-friendly 5k Fun Run suitable for all ages. The event also offers a shorter 3.5k route for anyone who doesn’t want to go the full 5K length.

For more info, and to sign up to run, visit www.nihospice.org/events/2017/august/2017-sparkle-dash
