Diverse Abilities, Dorset’s disability charity, is hosting its fourth Dorset Neon Run on Saturday 25 April.

Jon Wheatley, events co-ordinator at Diverse Abilities, said: “The Neon Run is a really fun event and as it isn’t time chipped, it allows participants to run, jog, walk or dance at their own pace. We’ll have plenty of entertainment on the night to keep the atmosphere pumping and are looking forward to what is sure to be another fantastic night of fundraising.”

The Dorset Neon Run is open to anyone over the age of 12. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. On the night, registration is from 7pm, with the warm up at 9.10pm and the race starting at 9.30pm.

Funds raised will go to Diverse Abilities, Dorset’s disability charity, supporting adults and children with disabilities across the county and providing a multitude of services including a specialist school, adults therapy centre, supported living bungalows, and advice service.
