The BodyMatters team have made a pact to take on the happiest 5k on the planet – the Colour Run 2017!! Our whole team will be donning our whites as we jog through the picturesque Sydney Botanic Gardens, enjoying the night skyline whilst being covered head to toe in colourful chalk.

This year’s theme is “get ready to glow” and will be happening on Saturday, February 18th.

The Colour Run encourages health and wellness whilst having a good time. At BodyMatters, we aim to promote healthy attitudes, beliefs and behaviours towards exercise and physical activity. We take on a flexible approach to exercise, meaning it is okay to skip exercise to do something else. Our mantra is that exercise is about moving for enjoyment, being social with others and having a fun time.

This is our first team event, so we’re looking for your support.

We will be raising money for The Butterfly Foundation to support those suffering with eating disorders and body image issues. You can make a contribution on our team donation page or alternatively, we will have a donation box in the office in the weeks prior to the run. We’re aiming to raise $1000 – any contribution, great or small, is appreciated.

We will be promoting our team fundraiser over the coming weeks, along with education and information on healthy exercise.

If you’re interested in doing the Colour Run, you can find out more info here.

Fun fact: The Colour Run team have expanded their brand and will be bringing Soul Pose  – yoga for a cause – to Sydney. Stay tuned for more information!
