A great new 3k fun run with a difference - you're bombarded with coloured bubbles!


Willow Wood are always looking for new, fun ways to raise those essential funds to help maintain our services, and have added this funtastic event to our fundraising calendar – the Bubble Rush!

The Bubble Rush does exactly what the name suggests: tens of thousands of coloured bubbles fly out of strategically placed cannons around the 3k route, and cover everyone in blue, yellow, pink or green bubbles!The bubbles are environmentally friendly and whether you enter as a family, a team or just by yourself, you’ll have a great time.

Willow Wood’s Dot Birchfield said “Some of our sister Hospices have already organised a Bubble Rush, and they all have been absolutely wonderful – just check out some of the photographs at!We’re really looking forward to bringing this event to our community; it’s something that the whole family can enjoy”.

It will be held at Dukinfield Rugby Club on Sunday 23 July, and the Bubble Rushers will be walking, jogging, running or dancing through a sea of bubbles as they laugh their way around the course.As Dot said “It’s not timed, it’s not a race, just throw yourself into the bubbles and enjoy!The bubbles may be up to your knees, up to your waist or even over your head but they are totally safe and environmentally friendly so just make the most of your time in the foam.It really is a fun run with a difference.”

There are early bird rates before the end of May and all entrants will receive a specially branded Bubble Rush T shirt and a medal at the end.Music will be playing, a d j will be keeping the atmosphere at fever pitch and there will be fun warm up routines before the start to ensure that you are raring to go.

Our grateful thanks go to Dukinfield Rugby Club and iTrain Gym for their support with this event.
