The best super-hero themed fun run returns to Hove Lawns on Sun 17 May 2020 and it will be better and more heroic than ever. People from around Sussex will come together, decked out in their favourite superhero garb, to raise money for local domestic abuse charity RISE. All the money raised from the run will go directly towards funding RISE’s vital services, including the refuge, helpline, counselling, and group therapy.
Among last year’s nearly 400 runners was four-year-old Wonder Woman Ce-ce Royal from Portslade. She said, “I really enjoyed the RISE Heroes Run. I liked getting to wear fancy dress and run with my friends, and I can’t wait to do it again!” She got to cross the finish line twice when she joined her auntie who was taking part in the adult race dressed as the Incredible Hulk.
The perfect event for the whole family to attend, there will be activities and games for everyone to take part in on the day, including face painting and a return of last year’s popular dog fancy dress show (pictured below).
This event raises funds for event for RISE. Registration fees helps the charity to cover the cost of running this event, but it’s your fundraising and/ donations which help support families who have been affected by domestic abuse. A fundraising target of £50 will make a huge difference to us, but of course they are grateful for every penny.
There’s also a call for superhero volunteers to help with runner registration, stewarding and staffing the water station, so if you can lend a hand please contact RISE on [email protected].
