The sun shone down on over 1,500 happy participants at our 2018 Bubble Rush event at Wicksteed Park on Sunday 20th May.
The thrilling 5k course through the beautiful grounds of Wicksteed Park, had one big difference – the four colourful bubble stations on route, where the bubble cannons shot out fabulous coloured foam onto delighted Bubble Runners. Families of all ages enjoyed running, dancing, walking and toddling their way through the foamy-madness, with many baby-bubblers completing the route in their pushchairs.
While sponsorship money collected by fundraisers taking part in the event has yet to be counted, we’re incredibly excited to announce that the event looks set to have raised over £20,000!
This is the first year we have held the Bubble Rush and it was a complete sell-out – we even had to open a waiting list for those that had left it too late but were desperate to take part.
Our lovely Events Manager Shelley Green said:
“We’re blown away by the success of the Bubble Rush event. Thank you so much to everyone who took part for your incredible enthusiasm and for your fabulous fundraising! We’ve had some brilliant feedback about how much families have enjoyed their day and we’ve managed to raise a phenomenal amount of money to continue providing an outstanding quality of hospice care to the local community.”
We know you’ll be thrilled to hear that the event will return on the 19th May 2019! Make sure you get your tickets NOW!.
