It’s just a week until Bubble Rush, the fun run through coloured bubbles, comes to Rother Valley Country Park, and the team at Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice are hoping that families from Sheffield and across South Yorkshire will sign up for the foam-filled family fun run on Saturday 11th May. Online registration for the event closes on Friday 10th at 12 noon.

Bubble Rush is a fun run with a difference: It starts in a sea of foam, and along the course are four bubble stations pumping out masses of coloured bubbles. It’s not a race, the event isn’t timed and there’s no pressure to run. The two-lap course is pushchair and wheelchair-friendly, so everyone in the family can take part.

There are three start waves, at 10:30, 11am and 12 noon. There is no minimum fundraising requirement to take part, but Bluebell Wood are encouraging people to raise sponsorship or make a donation to show their support for the charity, which cares for children and young adults with life-shortening and life-threatening conditions; and their families.

Raising just £25 to run through the bubble cannons could pay for a child at the hospice to have a dip in their spa pool, full of lots of bubbles too! £45 in sponsorship could also pay for lots of foamy fun in one of the hospice’s messy play sessions, complete with shaving foam, spaghetti, and lots of sensory activities.

Helen Mower, Head of Fundraising at Bluebell Wood, said: “We are always looking to organise new and exciting events for our supporters to join in, and we’re sure Sheffield Bubble Rush will be a fun run like no other! The foamy 5k is perfect for families or groups of friends or colleagues wanting to get together, have fun, and raise sponsorship for a good cause. We’re sure everyone will end the day completely covered in coloured foam!”

Tickets for Sheffield Bubble Rush can be purchased online until Thursday 9th May.
