A MUM will join thousands of other fundraisers when she runs Bluebell Wood’s Colour Dash in memory of her seven-year-old son.
Maxine Strong, whose son Lex died at the children’s hospice in 2013, will take part in the 5km race at Rother Valley Country Park on April 29.
Only a week remains before registration for the event closes on Wednesday (29) for supporters to make their way around the paint-strewn course.
Maxine said: “I continue to visit and fundraise and always in a positive manner as my inspirational son would want.
“Bluebell Wood is a very special place. I know for some of us it’s where you say goodbye to loved ones and for others it’s for care, but I always feel warmth and love whenever I go back.
“Special people who care and want to help take your pain away, that’s what it means to me.”
Maxine’s charity Lex’s Legacy has raised more than £25,000 for the North Anston charity.
Colour Dash tickets are £18 for adults, £9.50 for children and £49 for a family of four. Under-fives go free.
Tickets are also available at £15 per person for teams of eight or more. Free parking is offered with all tickets. Visit colourdash.bluebellwood.org or call 01909 517365.
