Bubbles and foam make a run fun!
When they celebrated their 25th birthday last year Halcyon included CHOC as one of the 3 beneficiaries of this event, with more than 1 400 people entering. This year CHOC was delighted to be chosen again as a beneficiary for this fun event which took place on the 10 September 2016. The entrants were promised “lots of foamy fun” and they were not disappointed!
This is a wonderful initiative from a local company whose motto is “Intelligence with heart.” Besides the numerous bubble stations along the race course, there was also a giant slide, a foam pit, face painting, lucky draw prizes and food stalls. The event took place at The Beacon Bay Country Club and the first 1 000 entrants received a race t-shirt and goody bag. The race t-shirt became a prized possession and there were unfortunately many disappointed late entrants who did not receive a shirt as the numbers exceeded all expectations.
The aim of the day was for families to have fun while supporting three local children’s charities and it was certainly achieved. Thank you to the Halcyon Group and their amazing staff for the hard work involved in ensuring the success of this event which has become a very important one on the local East London calendar and thus for supporting CHOC as the funds will go a long way in assisting children with cancer.
