The world’s foamiest fun run is coming back to the West Midlands – and organisers are calling on people to sign-up to help support local children and families.
Heaps of frothy fun is in store as Acorns Bubble Rush heads to a brand-new venue at Sandwell Valley Country Park on Sunday 17 July and features fun for the whole family, including live entertainment as well as food and drink stalls.
The soapy spectacular will see hundreds of bubblers wade through a colourful sea of suds to raise funds for Acorns Children’s Hospice and its vital care for local children and families.
Acorns Events Manager, David Levick, is urging people not to miss out on this incredi-bubble event and sign up now.
He said: “We’re so excited to bring our famous Acorns Bubble Rush to Sandwell Valley Country Park. Nothing beats wading through a mass of multi-coloured foam and this bumper Bubble Rush will not disappoint. So, sign up now to avoid missing out.
“You don’t have to be a runner, you can take on this family-friendly 5k at a pace that suits you – zoom through at lightning speed, or float slowly along with the bubbles, whatever works for you!”
The event will feature four bubble stations filled with neon foam. The 5k course involves two laps, meaning there is double the frothy-fun or you can choose to do just 1 lap of the 2.5k course.
David added: “Acorns Bubble Rush is not only heaps of fun – every penny raised will make a real difference to the children and families that need our care and support.
“As a charity, we rely on the generosity of our local community to help fund our children’s hospice care, so events like Bubble Rush are vital for us to continue our work.”
Acorns provides specialist palliative care to children and young people with life limiting and life threatening conditions across the West Midlands, and support for their families.
In the past year, the charity has provided care to more than 700 children and over 940 families, including those who are bereaved.
Tickets for Acorns Bubble Rush are now available, priced £15 for adults (16+), £8 for children (3-15 years) and children under 3s are free. These special early bird prices are available until 6th June and everyone who signs up will receive a free Bubble Rush T-shirt and medal.
Tickets cover the cost of the event, with bubblers encouraged to raise £15 to help fund Acorns vital care and support.

Notes to editors:
Due to the sensitive nature of Acorns care services it refrains from using the words ‘terminal’ or ‘terminally ill’ in its press releases and public communications when describing the children who use Acorns and the conditions that they have. Instead, Acorns uses the words ‘life limited’, ‘life limiting’, or ‘life threatening’. Acorns kindly requests that you respect this in your communications when referring to Acorns Children’s Hospice. Acorns children have a lot of living to do. Thank you.
