I didn't plan to photograph this event. It was just pure accident. I was going to see something different when this happened….
Fundraisers got down and dirty this weekend in the Sefton Park Splash Dash to raise money for a children’s charity.
Everyone from keen runners to amateur athletes took part in the Splash Dash on Saturday, which saw participants run 5km while getting splashed with paint.
The first feet crossed the start line around midday and the white t-shirts worn by the runners were pelted with paint powder at various points around the course.
The colourful runners got messy in the Park to raise money for Claire House Children’s Hospice.
The Wirral charity, which is based in Bebington, support and cares for families whose children won’t live to be adults.
On the splash dash website the company wrote: “Every single day, Claire House Children’s Hospice needs over £6,500 to cover its cost of care. We need funding for everything from our catering, housekeeping and vehicles to our hydrotherapy pool, medicines and televisions.
“And it’s through the fundraising efforts of some truly amazing individuals, companies and groups that we’re able to keep the doors of our hospice open.”
It is the third year the charity has held the event.
