Huntingdon’s Bubble Rush 5K Raised £21,500 For Arthur Rank Hospice!

Arthur Rank Hospice is delighted to announce that Bubble Rush 5K sponsored by One Leisure, which took place this summer has now raised £21,500.

More than 900 people took part in the third annual family fun run, on Saturday 21 July at Huntingdon’s Riverside Park. The family entertainment bubbled-over (!) on what was a brilliantly sunny day with compere Neil Marsh chatting to participants as they crossed the finish line, Finn the Bubble Fish posing for photos with fans and the ‘Incredi-bubble’ igloo brimming full of blowing bubbles perfect for a selfie!

Having warmed up, hundreds of friends, families and colleagues - wearing brightly coloured tutus, sunglasses, visors and neon-head bands - made their way around the 5K, which took in two laps of Riverside Park. Dotted along the route, foam stations pumped out 30 cubic metres of green, blue, yellow, pink and white foam per minute, as Bubblers ran, walked, skipped, danced and pushed buggies through!
