King’s Lynn is set for a novel new fundraising concept this summer.
East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) has announced its Bubble Rush 5k run will take place on Saturday 16th June.
Being staged at The Walks, the event involves runners passing through various ‘bubble stations’ throughout the course.
Emma Benstead, EACH Norfolk Events Fundraiser, said: “This new event is sure to be a spectacular sight and lots of fun for all involved – we can’t wait!
“There’s no race element, so participants are welcome to run, jog, walk, dance or toddle through the foam. It’s a completely natural and safe mixture.
“Merchandise, catering and other amusements mean this is sure to be a great family day out. Come along and soak up the colourful atmosphere!”
The King’s Lynn Bubble Rush is being sponsored by Vancouver Quarter and Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure.
Emma said: “We’d like everyone to raise as much money as possible, as registration fees help cover the costs of your participation.
“All funds raised from this event will go towards our children’s hospice in Quidenham, that provides care for children and young people with life-threatening conditions and support for their families across Norfolk.”
Children aged under four can take part for free. Those aged under 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
