Super heroes sought

Super heroes are being sought as Spider-Man is comes on a special mission to help a local charity.

He will be leading a children’s Super Hero Fun Run around Tilgate Lake, Crawley on July 22 to

raise vital funds for local charity Home-Start CHAMS, which serves, Horsha, Crawley and Mid Sussex.

Last year more than 200 little Super Heroes joined Spider-Man, from Super Hero

Parties, to take on the challenge which raised more than  £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.”

With a choice of 1.5km or 500m distance, this event is open to all ages and abilities, although

under 11s 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.
