This year over 1,000 people have signed up to Peace Hospice Care's Watford Colour Run, which is more than double the amount of people that attended the event last year!

The event, which takes place on the 22nd May 2016 at Aldenham Country Park, is now sold out due to the record number of participants. 

Vibe 106.7 FM's very own Ben Day and his family have signed up to the Watford Colour Run. Ben will be participating in the event in memory of his father who was in the Hospice's Inpatient Unit in 2007.

Ben said: "Sadly my Dad died from throat cancer and when he needed help, the Hospice were there to provide end of life care in a dignified way and in pleasant surroundings. I cannot thank them enough for the care they provided at an awful time."

Ben added: "I am proud to be able to represent both the radio station I work with (Vibe 107.6) and Peace Hospice Care."

Pete Watson, Events and Community Fundraising Manager at Peace Hospice Care said: "We're happy that Ben could join our Colour Run and we're delighted to be partnering with Vibe 107.6 FM this year. The Watford Colour Run is guaranteed to be a great day for participants, their families and spectators! Even though the run is sold out, people can still come along and buy packets of powered paint to throw at the runners, so everyone can get involved."

After the run there will be plenty of other activities to keep everyone entertained. There will be food stalls, live music, rides and lots more; so bring the whole family along! This really is going to be biggest, brightest and most colourful day of the year.

So far Ben has raised £243 to date. If you'd like to sponsor him please visit Ben's Fundraising Page.
