Bright For Sight 2020 fun run

August 15 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm

£15

Back for 2020, our Bright For Sight fun run will be taking place on sunny Weymouth seafront this coming Saturday August 15th.

Whether you’re testing yourself and timing your 10k run or are dressed up as an ostrich and taking the kids for a 5k wander, the main aim of the evening is to have FUN and dress up brightly to raise awareness of sight loss throughout Dorset, where the total number of people living with serious sight loss is estimated to be more than 33,000!

We’re holding the run a little later in the year (for warmth) and earlier in the evening (for daylight) to encourage more families and people with disabilities to come on down and join us – after all, FUN is the name of the game and everyone should be able to join in. With this in mind, there’s no timed element to the run and everyone gets a goody bag at the end of the evening!

Of course, we’re a charity at the end of the day and are only too keen to embrace you fundraising for us by getting yourself sponsored, so please feel free to do just that: we can send you sponsorship forms, you can make them up yourself, or there’s always online platforms like JustGiving – it’s all good!

Run registration opens at 6pm, with a clubbercise/zumba warm-up at 6:45pm ready for the run to start at 7pm.

This event is in aid of Dorset Blind Association and all funds raised supports those living with slight loss in your local area to live a full and happy life.
