VIDEO: Bubble Rush sponsorship plea follows foamy fun for Exmouth’s Pete’s Dragons

Bubble Rush runners have until August 2 to get their sponsorship to Pete’s Dragons charity.

More than 500 fun runners in June signed up to take part in the foamy fun – the South West’s first-ever Bubble Rush, dashing through multi-coloured bubbles over a 5k course at Exeter Racecourse.

Pete’s Dragons, with its headquarters in Exeter Road, Exmouth, was the event’s chosen charity.

Kate Bedding, project manager at the charity, said sponsorship raised by runners will help Pete’s Dragons continue its work helping those affected by suicide.

She thanked everyone who took part, for raising funds for Pete’s Dragons.

She said: “Pete’s Dragons was absolutely delighted with the number of people that participated and it was wonderful to see so many families joining in.

“We hope that we have raised awareness of what the charity has done countywide, and hope that we will be able to support more people who have had a bereavement by suicide.

“We would like to thank all those that fundraised for us and the money will go on helping those in the service.”

Pete’s Dragons was founded by Alison Jordan after her brother, Pete Wicks, took his own life at the age of 24.

The charity helps those who are suicide bereaved; offers suicide prevention training and awareness, plus mental-health and wellbeing support.
