The Color Run
In One2One tradition we are again putting together a team for this year’s Color Run, to fundraise and walk for charity, oh! and to cover ourselves in colour along the way.
The event is wheelchair accessible for wheelchairs that can go over grass. It may be called the Color Run but you can walk it at whatever pace you like, most people do!
Event Date: 4 November 2018
RSVP: If you would be interested in joining the One2One Color Run Team please email email@example.com by Friday 12 October 2018 so we can book and pay for a team.
