Funds raised will help end of life charity Marie Curie care for people living with a terminal illness, and their families

Bubble Rush, the fun run through coloured bubbles, has announced a partnership with end of life charity Marie Curie, where funds raised will help the charity care for people living with a terminal illness, and their families. 

The event in Manchester takes place at Heaton Park on Sunday 25th July, with participants being encouraged to raise funds to support the charity’s local nursing team and information and support services.

Bubble Rush is a fun run for all ages and abilities. The events are not timed and each course is designed to be pushchair and wheelchair friendly. 

Around the course are four ‘bubble stations’, each one filled with coloured foam to run or walk the two lap 5k course.

“Bubble Rush is an enormously fun way for friends and families to raise money, all while enjoying a great day out,” said Lynn Partridge, Marie Curie Community Fundraiser in Manchester.

“During the pandemic, Marie Curie has seen an increased demand on services caring for dying people and supporting their loved ones.

“Thanks to the public’s generosity at events like Bubble Rush, it will ensure Marie Curie Nurses can continue providing the vital care for people who are dying and living with a terminal illness, as well as their loved ones, when they need it most.” 

Bubble Rush events are being planned to ensure they operate in a COVID-safe way, in line with guidance issued by the government and the events industry. 

This includes provision for social distancing and enhanced hygiene measures. In addition the organisers plans have been audited in line with the events industry’s ‘Safe Event Scheme’ to ensure the health and safety of everyone involved.

“After such a challenging year when families and friends have been kept apart by the pandemic we are really looking forward to giving them the opportunity to have some fun together and help a good cause,” said Diana Caldwell of Bubble Rush organisers, Chicken Salad Events.

“We’re really looking forward to working with Marie Curie teams across the UK and adding some colour to peoples’ calendars.”
