It’s big. It’s bold. It’s gutsy. It’s the UK’s one and only disability sport series for the Everyday Superhero and their friends and family! The fun challenges throw out cut-off times and equipment restrictions to make sure everybody has the best time possible. The emphasis is very much on fun so masks, capes and pants over tights are positively encouraged! As an official Superhero Series Charity friend, we’re putting a call out to our own community of Superheroes to join our teams for two fantastic fundraising events. Grab your cape and choose your mission!

Unite with family and friends to take on a stage each of a Superhero Tri challenge – that’s a swim, cycle and push/run. Or you can run, walk, push or cycle the 3km Superhero Charge! Please see below for your choice of challenges. You don’t have to come to us with a fully formed team. Get in touch and we’ll match you up with other intrepid Superhero teammates for an unforgettable day out. Anyone can enter, as long as there’s at least one person with a disability per team.

Anything goes
What’s brilliant about all Superhero Series challenges is that there are no cut-off times and you can bring any kind of gismo or gadget you need to help you complete the challenge, from flippers and floats in the water to electric and day chairs, walking frames, race runners and adapted bikes. What’s more, everyone is welcome to bring a ‘Sidekick’ to push, guide or simply accompany them around the course.

Great family day out
The challenges are just the beginning. Both events are set in 450 acres of spectacular parkland and there’ll be all kinds of entertainment and refreshments for Superheroes, Sidekicks and spectators big and small. Plus parking is free of charge.

You CAN hit that sponsorship target!

Don’t be overwhelmed by the sponsorship, you’ll make it and who knows – you may even smash it!

As well as asking friends, family and colleagues for donations, you can also organise extra fundraising activities to reach your goal. When you sign up, you’ll receive a fundraising pack which has loads of ideas to help get you started. It’s split into two sections; covering quick fundraising ideas for busy people and larger fundraising activities such as setting up a pub quiz.

We are always here to help support you in reaching your goal, so feel free to get in touch with us any time. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Karen Yates on karen.yates@togetherforshortlives.org.uk.
