Buncrana's first even colour run takes place this Saturday in aid of the Truth For Danielle Mc Laughlin campaign.

Danielle Mc Laughlin

A rainbow of colour will stream through Buncrana this Saturday, July 29th, as the community remembers a young woman who died in India this year.

Donegal woman Danielle Mc Laughlin, aged 28, had been celebrating the Holi Festival in the Goa region when she was tragically murdered.

Her family and friends in the Truth for Danielle charity have organised a Colour Run to honour her final days in a positive light.

Registration is open on Friday, 28th July from 4-8pm. Entrants can still register on Saturday morning from 11-12.30 at the Buncrana Leisure Centre.

The event is going to be a fantastic family day out, with music by DJ Ois Bosh games and other treats throughout the day.

The colour run begins at 1pm on Saturday leaving from Buncrana Leisure Centre.

Organisers say all are welcome, even if you are not walking or running, there is plenty of entertainment for kids of all ages.

“It was the Holi festival or colour festival Danielle was visiting when she was sadly killed, so her family and friends thought what better way than remembering Danielle than through something she spent her last day doing,” organisers say.

“The colour run is for people of all ages and we want this to be a great day of fun for all the family, food and drinks will be served after the run which begins at the Leisure Centre, Buncrana and travels to Swan Park and back again with plenty colour stations and surprises on the way.”

Funds from the event will go toward the Truth for Danielle Mc Laughlin campaign to help pay for legal fees so her family can get closer to the truth of what happened in India.

Tickets are €20 for adults, €10 for children under 12 and please ask about family discounts.
