This summer, those living in and around Bury St Edmunds will be able to join in with the areas frothiest, most colourful foam party.
Bubble Rush, sponsored by CurveMotion, is coming to west Suffolk for the first time and the event involves a 5km run, walk or dance around Nowton Park in Bury St Edmunds.
Taking place on Sunday 29 July, the non–competitive event is fun for the whole family and features five bubble stations with cannons blasting coloured bubbles covering participants in safe, frothy foam. As part of the entry fee, everyone who takes part will receive a Bubble Rush t-shirt to wear during the event and everyone who completes the course will also receive a participants medal.
Taking part in the event will help raise vital funds for Zest, part of the St Elizabeth Hospice family, which aims to help care for young adults in the region living with a progressive or terminal illness. Josh Margereson is one young adult who will benefit from the money raised by Bubble Rush and said: “I may be a young adult with a serious illness but I’m still a young adult who wants to do the same things that others my age do. I want to hang out with my friends and take part in activities that everyone else does and the money raised from Bubble Rush with help me do this.
“As well as that, I know that looking after me can be hard on my family sometimes so it’s nice to be able to give them a break too. One of the big aims of Zest is to be able to provide short breaks for people like me so that I can have some time being cared for my specialists but also give my family some time together without having to worry if I’m OK.
“By taking part in Bubble Rush in Bury St Edmunds in July, you’ll really help make a real difference to young adults like me who are living with a progressive or terminal illness in this area.”
