Be a kid at heart again and join Kelowna's first Run in Colour

August 21, 2013 - 4:43 PM

KELOWNA -  Kelowna's inaugural Grant Thornton 5K Run in Colour on behalf of Kelowna General Hospital Foundation (KGH Foundation) takes place on September 21 starting at Waterfront Park. It is a great opportunity for young and old to be kids at heart again!

And Kelowna's Twin Creek Media has taken this challenge seriously by supporting their staff and families to participate. "We are really excited for the 5K Run in Colour for KGH - we're sponsoring our staff and their families for this fun event because of the positive healthcare impact it will have for Kelowna residents for years to come," says creative director, James Shaw, who along with his wife and kids who are 9 and 7 will be out together in a no-holds-barred running paint war.  "To be totally honest, the kids think it's so cool to throw paint at each other that they'd raise all the money themselves to participate!  So we thought whatever amount of money the staff and kids can raise themselves, Twin Creek Media will match.  We challenge other Kelowna businesses to do the same! Let's support the KGH Foundation's goal of attracting a 1,000 participants on this first run!"

All funds raised will go toward the purchase of state-of-the-art equipment, patient care and comfort items at Kelowna General Hospital.  The Grant Thornton 5K Run in Colour is an event for everyone and kids five and under are free!   Register now at www.5krunincolour.com  or participate as a volunteer or sponsor. All details are available on the website. Make sure you get the latest information and join us on Facebook at  https://www.facebook.com/GrantThornton5kRunInColour

The Kelowna General Hospital Foundation is an independent, volunteer-driven charitable organization committed to enhancing the delivery of healthcare to the patients of Kelowna General Hospital and its associated facilities.  More information available at: http://kghfoundation.com/
