Bub­ble Rush for Rain­bows

Loughborough Echo - - NEWS -

A FOUN­TAIN of bub­bles shot out across Abbey Park to pro­mote Rain­bows Hospice’s ‘Bub­ble Rush’, set to take place for the first time ever this Septem­ber.

Young­sters of all ages took the chance to jump in and get a taste of the foam-filled rev­elry in ad­vance of the big event which will take place on Septem­ber 23 at the his­toric Le­ices­ter park to raise funds for the Lough­bor­ough hospice.

There’s still time to sign up for the mul­ti­coloured foam-filled frenzy which will see par­tic­i­pants run, walk, dance, or skip their way around a 5km cir­cuit. Along the way they will en­counter can­nons blast­ing out walls of coloured bub­bles, which are fam­ily and wheelchair friendly.

Each par­tic­i­pant will re­ceive a free Bub- ble Rush t-shirt, Rain­bows wrist­band and par­tic­i­pa­tion medal. Or­gan­is­ers hope the event will raise at least £30,000 for the char­ity.

Vic­to­ria Brunt, events co-or­di­na­tor at Rain­bows, said: “We are so ex­cited to be hold­ing our first Bub­ble Rush event in Le­ices­ter. But we would like more peo­ple to join us to make this our big­gest, bub­bli­est foam-filled ex­trav­a­ganza ever! There is still time to get in­volved It’s not about speed or fit­ness, it’s about cel­e­bra­tion, hav­ing fun with friends and fam­ily - and rais­ing a smile for Rain­bows.”

En­try is £25 for over 16s, £7.50 for un­der 16s and un­der 3s go free.
