Rowcroft announces brand new family friendly 5k bursting into Torbay Velopark this September
02 May 2017
Rowcroft Hospice is bursting with excitement to announce a new family-friendly sponsored 5k, the Bubble Rush, is coming to Torbay Velopark on Saturday 9 September.
The fun run with a difference will invite families with children over three-years-old to walk, dance or even toddle their way around an easy 5k route while being showered in thousands of colourful bubbles.
The event will replace Rowcroft’s previously popular event, The Colour Rush Paignton.
Daniel Robson, Rowcroft’s Events Manager, explained: “We thought it was time to offer local families a new and novel way to support their local hospice; and what better way than by showering adults and children alike with thousands of foamy, light, colourful bubbles?!
“We’re planning a full day of frothy fun for the whole family, with cannons blasting bubbles along the route, music from The Breeze and a delicious selection of food and drinks stalls.”
Rowcroft is inviting families who’d like to take part in the super-frothy 5k to visit www.rowcrofthospice.org.uk/bubble-rush to sign up for exclusive priority booking.
Daniel explained: “On 22 May we will be sending an email to all those who have signed up for priority booking with an exclusive discount code that will get you £5 off each adult ticket price. General registration will then open on Wednesday 14 June!”
Full price tickets will cost £20 per adult (£15 with a discount code!), £8 per child (aged 3 – 16-years-old) and £40 per family (two adults and two children).
Daniel added: “Once signed up, we ask that all families taking part raise as much in sponsorship as possible to help local families living with life-limiting illnesses in South Devon to share precious time together.”
Tara Jones’ Mum was cared for by Rowcroft earlier this year and Tara, and her family, are now doing all they can to raise funds for the hospice. Tara said: “Rowcroft made such a huge difference to my Mum, she was admitted to the hospice’s Inpatient Unit for two weeks and came out a different person; eating again and with her mojo back!
“Rowcroft helped our family share so many special moments, including taking my daughter’s new puppy in to show their Nanny, giving us memory boxes that my daughters made with my Mum, and helping us all have a last Christmas together.
“One day someone you love may need to go into the hospice so if you can help your local hospice by fundraising, it would be extremely amazing!”
