Bubble Rush 2018

Bubble Rush 2018


St Helena Hospice Bubble Rush event promises a fun-filled bubbly day for the whole family!
This run features a 5k course with four Bubble Stations along the route where our cannons pump out coloured bubbles. Participants of all ages and all abilities can take part, you can run, jog or walk or through the foam… you can even dance if you want to, all we ask is that you have lots of fun!
At the start of the run we will have a bubble village where registration takes place. In our village you’ll find entertainment and refreshments.
This event is open to all age groups and abilities including wheelchair users and prams (please be aware there’s hilly terrain around the park) - bring along family, friends or colleagues, and make a day to remember. Spectators and participants can take part in our fun activities available at the starting point too.
There is no minimum sponsorship amount that we ask for, but please do raise as much as you can so we can continue providing a high quality of service to people in your community with life-limiting illness. It’s easy to set up a Just Giving page to make sure your friends and family support you to take on this fantastic fundraising event!
