Summer Virtual Rainbows 5K Corporate Edition

Summer Virtual Rainbows 5K for Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People

Are you looking for new and exciting way to get your employees engaged in raising money for charity? Create some healthy competition? Team bonding and boost staff morale? We’ve got just the ticket… our incredible Summer Virtual Rainbows 5K. 

Covid-19 may have stopped us from holding any of our usual popular events (which has in turn had a huge impact on our fundraising efforts), but it won’t top our Summer Virtual Rainbows 5K . 

This summer, get your team together, lace up your trainers and help spread smiles as you complete the miles by taking part in the Summer Virtual Rainbows 5K. We’re adding some friendly competition into the mix too, by having a leader board of the top five companies with the most participants – will you be crowned champions? And a top five leader board of the most raised in sponsorship by companies – with regular shout outs across our social media channels.

Whether you want to run, hop, skip, cycle or even dance the distance, in one go or in short bursts, it’s up to you!

Registration is FREE!

So we know you’re taking part in this fantastic summer event, please register your company by emailing Emily or Kate with the names of everyone taking part. Kate and her team will then be in touch with helpful fundraising tips and advice, including a link to download your very own social media assets, so you can shout about your fundraising.

When you raise a minimum sponsorship of £20 (per adult) we’ll send you one of our fantastic limited edition medals. If you raise £100pp, along with a fantastic medal we’ll also send you a special Rainbows t-shirt; and if you raise £200pp you’ll receive a Rainbows water bottle and Rainbows t-shirt along with your medal.

What are you waiting for? Get your team together today and help spread the smiles as you complete the miles.
