ACORNS Children’s Hospice is calling on bubbly fundraisers to dig out their trainers or walking boots for this weekend’s charity event.
The Acorns Bubble Rush, taking place this Saturday (June 24) at Hatton Country World in Dark Lane, will see over 1,000 ‘bubblers’ run, jog or walk a five km course through reams of colourful frothy bubbles.
The fun-filled family event is being held to raise vital funds for Acorns Children’s Hospice and the charity’s care for children and their families across Solihull and the Midlands.
Registration for the event closes tomorrow at midnight and Acorn’s events co-ordinator Lynda Hadley is urging people to sign up quickly to avoid disappointment.
She said: “After the success of last year’s run, this year is set to be even bigger and better so move quickly to secure your place. “The sight of hundreds of people running through a field of multi-coloured bubbles has to be seen to be believed and we can’t wait for the day.”
The event will feature merchandise and accessory stalls and entry includes a free Bubble Rush t-shirt and finish line medal.
All participants will also be given discounted entry to Hatton Country World as a thank you for taking part.
Lynda added: “It’ll be fantastic day out for all our ‘bubblers’ but from a fundraising point of view this event is so important.
“Acorns relies on fundraising, including events like this to continue providing its vital care so we’re hoping lots of people sign-up and join us.”
Entry costs £22.50 for adults and £12.50 for children, with special rates for families and larger groups.
This year’s event also includes a ‘Smart Bubbler’ scheme which means any participants who raise £100 or more in fundraising can claim their registration fee back.
