Andrea King, head of community fundraising at East Coast Hospice, said: "We are so excited that Bubble Rush is coming to Lowestoft for the first time ever.
"It is a unique, family-friendly event, with no minimum or maximum age limit, and the course is pushchair and wheelchair friendly."
Those taking part can run, jog, walk, dance or toddle through the foam as the East Coast Bubble Rush is held.
To get the party started in the Bubble Village, local DJ Decks will be on the stage providing musical entertainment throughout the day, along with an energising and motivating Zumba routine from Sarah Chow and fun and humour from compere for the day Kimble Reynolds.
Andrea King added: "Great Yarmouth and Waveney very sadly is the last area in England to have an adult independent hospice facility available to is community and once built East Coast Hospice will provide the much-needed free specialist palliative care and supporting day care services needed by so many."
