Join the mission to help vulnerable local children
On 11 April, Spider-Man is returning 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.
Train up as a Super Hero and use your powers to take on a sponsored charity fun run, choosing either 1.5km or 500m distance. Walk, run or toddle your way round in Super Hero style and after your mission enjoy the fun mini event village which has stalls and activity’s for all the family to enjoy! Event village open from 9am until lunch time.
Every little Super Hero who takes on this mission will receive: a Super Hero wrist band, bottle of water & entry into the prize draw. There is also a prize for the most money raised.
In 2018 – our last Crawley based run, 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 sweet and cake sales after school, 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 abuse, 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, Tilgate Park and Tilgate Parkrun, who are supporting this event again.”
This event is open to all ages and abilities – under 11’s must be accompanied by an adult. There is a £5 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.
