Hundreds of people ran, jumped and slid their way around Oulton Park race track at the weekend as St Luke’s Hospice held its fourth Bubble Rush event.
Over 1,200 people of all ages took part in the 5km frothy fun run on Sunday 22nd April, helping to raise thousands of pounds which will go towards the care of patients and their families at the hospice.
Jane Thompson, event manager at St Luke’s, said: “We are, as always, overwhelmed by the support for Bubble Rush and our Hospice. Thank you to everyone who took part.
“It was fantastic to see so many smiling faces enjoying the bubbles. Thanks also to our volunteers who helped on the day to ensure the event ran smoothly.
“Without their support, events such as these just couldn’t take place and we are so grateful for their continued support.”
Kate Goodwin who took part in Bubble Rush said: “What a fantastic event, thank you. We had a fabulous time and will definitely be doing it again next year. So well organised and so much fun!”
Denise Griffiths, who braved the multi-coloured bubbles with her husband Malcolm and grandsons Robin and Kaleb, added: “We had a fabulous time. My grandson is only three he thought it was amazing. Thank you to everyone’s hard work.”
Bubble Rush was the brainchild of St Luke’s Hospice and was created with local events company Extreme Adventure.
Since then Extreme Adventure has created Bubble Rush events for more than 40 hospices across the UK each year, raising in excess of £1million for patient care.
The St Luke’s events team is now working on its second fun run event of the year: KAPOW, a giant inflatable obstacle run which will take place on Saturday 29th September.
More details will be released at the beginning of May.
