Final call to take part in Acorns biggest-ever Bubble Rush – don’t miss out!

It’s the final countdown as the world’s foamiest fundraiser prepares to blast off in the Black Country to raise vital funds for local children and families.

Acorns Children’s Hospice is bringing its biggest-ever Bubble Rush to Walsall Arboretum this Sunday (23 July) and with just days to go, supporters are urged to sign up now or risk missing out!

The family-friendly 5k, which is being sponsored by Talbots Law, is being held to raise vital funds towards Acorns and its care for local children with life limiting and life threatening conditions.

Hollie Edwards, Events Officer at Acorns Children’s Hospice, said: “We’re so excited for this Sunday’s event, we’ve got more foamy fun than ever before, and we really don’t want anyone to miss out – so get your tickets now and avoid disappointment!”

Acorns Bubble Rush will see participants run, jog, walk and wade in two waves through a 4ft-high sea of rainbow suds. Everyone who takes part will receive a free finish line medal.

And when the run is done, the fun continues with Acorns Bubble Rush Event Village, home to music, food stalls, games, face painting, and even Acorns very own Bubbleologist.

Holly added:

“There’s so much excitement on offer, why not get a team of family and friends together and really make a day of it? Not only will you all have a fabulously foam-tastic time, but by raising money for Acorns you’ll be helping us continue to be there for local children and families when they need us the most. With your help with can be stronger together.”
