‘Bubblers’ Needed as Frothy Fun Run Comes to Birmingham
Heaps of frothy fun is in store as the world’s foamiest family run comes to Birmingham for the first time this summer.
The Acorns Bubble Rush, which is being held at Cofton Park in south Birmingham on Saturday 20 July, will see hundreds of bubblers (also known as participants) make their way around a 5km course through reams of multicoloured bubbles.
The soapy spectacular is being held to raise funds for Acorns Children’s Hospice and the charity’s care for children and support for their families across Birmingham and the West Midlands.
Rachel Farrington, Acorns Events Officer, urged people to sign up now and take advantage of an early bird ticket offer which ends on Sunday 9 June.
She said: “We’re so excited to bring Birmingham’s first ever Bubble Rush to the city this summer – it promises to be a day to remember! It’s a popular event so I’d encourage everyone to sign up now and avoid disappointment.
“It doesn’t matter whether you’re a runner or not, you can take the course at whatever pace suits you – zoom through at lightning speed, or float slowly along with the bubbles, whatever works for you!”
The event will feature merchandise and accessory stalls, a free Bubble Rush t-shirt and finish line medal.
Rachel added: “The Bubble Rush is not only heaps of fun – every penny raised will make a real difference to the children and families we support. It costs Acorns about £27,000 every day to fund our care, so events like Bubble Rush are vital to help us continue our work.”
Acorns provides specialist palliative care to children and young people with life limiting and life threatening conditions across Birmingham and the West Midlands, and support for their families.
In the past year, the charity has provided care to more than 870 children and over 1,140 families, including those who are bereaved.
Early bird tickets for Acorns Bubble Rush are now available, priced £18 for adults (16+), £9 for children (3-15 years). Family tickets (2 adults + 2 children) are also available, priced £49.
Tickets cover the cost of the event, but every pound raised in sponsorship goes directly to supporting local children and families. Star Bubblers who raise £100 or more for Acorns will also be entered into a prize draw to win a family pass to Alton Towers.
