Huntingdon set for bubble bonanza as EACH announces details of foam-tastic fun run


15-01-2019

Huntingdon will be awash with bubbles when East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) brings another exciting fundraiser to the town.

Bubble Rush is a 5k fun run with a difference as participants head off amongst a sea of bubbles, before passing four bubble stations where cannons pump out coloured foam to create a four-foot (1.2-metre) deep bubble bath!

EACH will be hosting the event at Huntingdon Racecourse on Sunday 9 June. Runners will go off in two waves, with the first starting at 11am and the second at noon.

It follows an Inflatable Colour Dash at the racecourse last year that was attended by 551 and raised an incredible £23,974.

Karen Newton, EACH Cambridgeshire Fundraising Manager, said: “Bubble Rush is sure to be a spectacular sight and lots of fun for all involved – we can’t wait!

“There’s no race element, so participants are welcome to run, jog, walk, dance or toddle through the foam. It’s a completely natural and safe mixture.

“Merchandise, catering and other amusements mean this is sure to be a great family day out. Come along and soak up the colourful atmosphere!”

Karen said: “We’d like everyone to raise as much money as possible, as registration fees help cover the costs of putting on this event. A nice minimum target to set might be £30 as this year is the 30th anniversary of our hospice in Milton that provides care for children and young people with life-threatening conditions, and support for their families, across Cambridgeshire and West Essex.”

All entrants will receive a T-shirt and a medal. Children aged under five can take part for free. Those aged under 16 must be accompanied by a paying adult.
