The fun run through coloured bubbles takes place on Saturday 13th July in East Park. The 5k family-friendly event is raising funds for Dove House Hospice. Unfortunately, all places are now taken but spectators can get a flavour of what they have missed!
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 two start waves, at 11am and 12 noon. There is no minimum fundraising requirement to take part, but Dove House Hospice are asking people to get sponsored or make a donation to show their support for the work of the charity.
Dove House Hospice provides specialist care to people in Hull and East Yorkshire who are living with a terminal illness; delivering the best possible care when there is no cure. A big part of their work involves families, supporting them through the illness and after bereavement. All the services are provided free of charge, but they are not free to provide. Dove House receives Government funding for just 36 days of the year and relies on the generosity of the local community to ensure they are there whenever they are needed.
Dove House Hospice is maintained by some Government funding, but the majority of the running costs has to be raised in the local community and so there is no charge for any of our services.
