Pleckgate’s Year 7 pupils were definitely bubbly at the launch of East Lancashire Hospice’s Bubble Rush.
Blackburn Rovers defender Paul Downing came along to make sure the event had the perfect kick off which will take place at Pleckgate on Sunday 6th May.
The ‘Bubble Rush’ will either be one lap of the playing fields at the school which is 2.5k or you can double this to 5k.
Paul said: “It’s the first time I have been to Pleckgate and the students are having a lot of fun in the Bubble Rush! I might come myself on the day as everyone is having a great time and smiling.
“It will be a great event for a worthy cause and hopefully will be well supported with a lot of children taking part as it’s great to see children involved in sport.”
This Bubble Rush is the first of its kind in East Lancashire and the first 200 to register will receive 50% off.
The standard adult price for entering is £20, but this will be reduced to £10, and just £4 for children.
The event will include different coloured bubble checkpoints to run through for plenty of foamy fun, plus a few surprises along the way.
Entry into the run includes a t-shirt and a medal with live music and entertainment hosted by 2BR.
The money raised in sponsorship will help the East Lancashire Hospice care for people with life-limiting illnesses from Blackburn, Darwen, Hyndburn and the Ribble Valley.
There will be two waves on the day – the Groovy Green wave setting off at 11am and the Hello Yellow wave setting off at 12.30pm.
