Dundalk as it Happens
Dundalk IT students to host colour run in aid of two charities
Thursday April 6th will see Dundalk IT students hold a 3km colour run uniquely titled ‘Run or Dye Trying’ in support of two charities: the Dundalk Simon Community and Crumlin Children’s Hospital.
The event will see students from every department and staff of the institute run in pairs on the sports grounds and further be doused in a wide range of bright colours as they cross each kilometre on the sports track.
The colour run honours a tradition set out by DkIT’s Business Ethics class following a history developed by past years to create and participate in a campus event designed to assemble the college community while helping a good cause. Students of this year’s term decided on the run as it was collectively agreed to be a modern and exciting approach to take differing from other events and the idea took a playful approach that other activities of the past have lacked.
Both the Dundalk Simon Community and Crumlin Children’s Hospital received equal marks when it came to elections of the proposed campaign and thus the college group unanimously agreed to distribute the funds equally to the two deserving organisations.
The day promises to be another event for the books and a time to celebrate before the Easter break.
