Michelle marks a milestone after major back surgery
Our support team at Station Road in Kettering, Northamptonshire, are feeling extremely proud of their colleague Michelle who recently completed her first ever 5k Bubble Rush Run, raising vital funds for her local Hospice.
This, the first time Michelle had ever taken part in a run, was the cause of much celebration marking a milestone in Michelle’s incredible journey of recuperation following major back surgery last year.
Describing the challenge Michelle said;
“Almost a year after spinal surgery the opportunity came up to apply and take part in the 5k run. I walked and danced through coloured foam in aid of the Cransley Hospice Trust. I took part on the day alongside my husband and my son. In preparation for the event I did lots of walking which, also helped with my rehabilitation post-surgery.
“I chose to support the Cransley Hospice as it is a local facility that relies on donations and I have known friends who have been cared for at the Hospice. I felt it was a really worthwhile cause and am proud to have raised £117 with lots of colleagues at Station Road supporting me to do this. As a family we raised a total of £219.00.
“I really enjoyed the experience and am looking forward to doing it again next year, so be warned I will be looking for some sponsorship again next time!”
Held in Wicksteed Park, Kettering, the 5k course started in a sea of bubbles and featured four Bubble Stations along the route where cannons pumped out coloured foam creating a 4ft deep bubble bath. The event was not timed making sure the entire event is about fun and achievement with finishers receiving a medal upon completion.
