How to hold your own Bubble Fun Run

Is your PTA looking to spice up your Jog-a-Thon this year without breaking the bank? How about a do-it-yourself Bubble Fun Run?

How does a Bubble Fun Run work?
A typical Bubble Fun Run course has 2-3 stations set-up that will have bubble machines going as the runners race by.

Here's what you'll need at each station:

  • 1-2 volunteers

  • A small table

  • Bubble machine and bubbles

  • Extension chord

  • Water 

Where do we get the bubble machines?
You can buy awesome bubble machines on Amazon here for under $50. 

How do we raise money?
Bubble Fun Runs are a great way to raise money for your PTA. Just like a jog-a-thon, students obtain sponsors for each lap around the track. 

99Pledges can help by giving each runner an online pledge page.

Schools love us because we'll help you...

  • Raise much more - you’ll reach more donors online with zero parent set-up.

  • Eliminate the work - you won’t have to chase checks or pledge forms.

  • Use 99Pledges for FREE - you only pay the standard credit card and PayPal processing fees of 3.49% plus 49 cents per transaction.

  • Do all the set-up for you and be there every step of the way. 

Other Tips

The Starting Line - To help with congestion at your bubble stations, break runners up into “waves” of 25/50/100 participants at a time. Wait about 90 seconds and then release the next wave and so forth. 

The Finish Line - This is where the most photos will be taken. Create your a hashtag for your PTA to share photos back to your event. 

Music - tunes are a must!
