After having to go virtual for the last two years, Rainbow
Hub’s most popular fundraising event – the annual Ramble is back live for 2022 and the event will be started by Britain’s Got Talent finalist and local celebrity, Steve Royle.
The Mawdesley based charity aims to raise thousands of pounds to help continue providing its specialist services for children and young people with physical and neurological disabilities.
This fantastic event, supported by Ventbrook Ltd, ViewSonic
UK, Quantum Healthcare and Care Preference, will take place on Saturday, 21st May 2022 starting and finishing at Bishop Rawstorne High School, Croston.
Participants can choose the 5 or 11 mile walk starting at 10am with registration from 8.45 am and everyone will be given a Rainbow Hub t shirt so it will be a colourful event but fancy dress is still welcome.
There will be entertainment whilst the participants register and warm up with local personal trainer, Kirsty Rimmer, plus music from DJ Jonathan Knowles. Refreshments including burgers, ice cream, hot and cold drinks will be available.
Many of the children who attend Rainbow Hub will also be taking part in their own personal challenges. For some, this will be an Obstacle challenge involving them having to negotiate stepping on and off large stepping stones. Lifting their feet up as they step through a raised ladder, walking over a mini seesaw, using balance bars, pulling themselves along on their tummy using their arms and lots of other tasks. All of this may be natural to us but it is extremely difficult for the children who attend Rainbow Hub.
They are faced with balance and coordination challenges, together with physical disabilities which mean moving and walking is so much harder for them.
The entry fee for the Ramble is £15 for adults (16 and over) and £5 for children, free for those in wheelchairs and pushchairs. Dogs welcome.
Entrants will receive a confirmation email containing event instructions, training information, fundraising tips and a sponsor form.
Anyone who would still like to book a place can do so online until Friday 20th May at 5 pm at https://rainbowhub.org/event/rainbowramble/
