Frequently Asked Questions

What is Colour Rush?

The Colour Rush is a 5KM colourful fun run organized by the Sarawak Children's Cancer Society to raise awareness and funds in support of families and children battling childhood cancer in Sarawak.

It is held in the month of September in conjunction with Childhood Cancer Awareness month. Bright colour powder is thrown during the run, representing children and the colours that they add to our lives.

So come along with your friends and families for some colourful, memorable, and meaningful experience. Together lets help kids outrun cancer.
