Bubble Rush 2016
High Woods Country Park, Turner Road, Colchester, CO4 5JR | Saturday 11 June 2016 12:00 - 15:00
Bubble Rush is back for a second year!
Join us at High Woods Country Park on Saturday 11th June 2016 for a fun-filled day for the whole family!
Participants of all ages and abilities will face five ‘bubble stations’ along the 5km course where they will run through a wall of bubbles! They will be blasted by our special bubble cannons which blow out 30 cubic metres a minute of bubbles with different coloured bubbles at each station.
This sponsored event is open to all age groups and abilities - bring along family, friends or colleagues, and make a day to remember. Even though it is hilly, buggies and wheelchairs can be taken around the course. Spectators and participants can take part in our fun activities available at the starting point too.
There is no minimum sponsorship amount that we ask for, but please do raise as much as you can so we can continue providing a high quality of service to people in your community with life-limiting illness.
Just by raising £80 sponsorship, you could pay for a psychosocial support session - a team made up of social workers, counsellors and family support workers, helping families adjust to changes they are experiencing.
It’s easy to set up a Just Giving page to make sure your friends and family support you to take on this fantastic fundraising event!

Joanna Hope - 2016 participant: "I'm taking part with my daughter, son and daughter's friend this year. We wanted to do the run for a very worthwhile charity. The hospice seems to offer such a caring environment and having had family to care for myself at the end of life, having that kind of environment is just so important. Keep up the fantastic work you do!"
Carla Reeves - 2015 participant: "We all loved going through each set of bubbles - that was the best part, and the children loved trying to guess what the next colour would be. We're definitely taking part again this year as we had so much fun last time!
