On the 22nd July Spider-Man is coming to Crawley on a special mission, and he needs the help of all our local Super Heroes.
Spider-Man will be leading a children’s Super Hero Fun Run around Tilgate Lake, to raise vital funds for local charity Home-Start CHAMS.
Last year more than 200 little Super Heroes joined Spider-Man, from Super Hero Parties, to take on the challenge which raised over £3,400 for Home-Start CHAMS. As well as sponsorship for the run, local children came up with a range of ways to raise money, from a Fundraising Day at nursery, to doing chores around the house.
Each year Home-Start CHAMS help hundreds of local children in families dealing with issues such as mental health, financial problems, or serious illness. Their trained volunteers work with the families, helping parents to overcome these challenges and give young children the best possible start in life.
Aneliese Whittaker, Fundraising and Marketing Co-ordinator at Home-Start said “This event is a fun way for local children to get involved and support other children. We are so grateful to Super Hero Parties, Crawley Wellbeing and Tilgate Parkrun, who are supporting this event to make it the best Super Hero Fun Run yet.”
Choosing from 1.5km or 500m distance, this event is open to all ages and abilities – under 11’s must be accompanied by an adult. There is a £2 per child registration fee to enter and every Super Hero is asked to take on the mission to raise much needed funds for vulnerable local children.
