Dorset Blind Association's Bright for Sight fun run is back for 2020.

It will take place this Saturday 15th August on Weymouth's Seafront.

More than 33,000 people in Dorset are estimated to be living with serious sight loss. 

The main aim of the evening is to have fun and dress up in bright colours to raise awareness of sight loss throughout Dorset.

Fancy dress is welcome and Adults can take part in a 10K and children in a 5K.

To encourage families to attend, the Dorset blind association are holding the fun run in one of the warmer months in the year and a little earlier in the evening.

The run is not timed and everyone will receive a goody bag at the end of the evening.

People are encouraged to get sponsored and fundraise as much as possible for the charity.
