Obstacle colour run a massive success

FAMILIES have climbed and crawled through the Mundubbera colour run course to raise money for the Blue Light.

Mundubbera Blue Light organised the event, the first of its kind in the town.

Secretary Valerie Zipf said they were tossing up between having the disco and the colour run, but agreed this would be a much better idea.

"I went to a fun run in Gayndah, it was the colour run for the orange festival, and when we came back we thought we should try something different,” MrsZipf said.

"I suggested we do this fun run and I spoke to Dave Holleran and he was all keen to come on board and do this obstacle course and add a bit of colour at the end with the slides.”

Mrs Zipf said it took a bit of organising but agreed it was all worth it when the crowds arrived at the showgrounds.

"I would have to say the slide was a massive drawcard - the kids loved the colour slide,” she said.

The committee thanked its volunteers and sponsors.
