Look, I don’t know how to tell you this, but your kid probably is a superhero. Don’t believe me? Just ask them. I know, this is big news. Well mainly because being the parent of a superhero is a big job! Besides for the general cleaning and feeding duty, you now have the colossal task of keeping your masked crusader in tip top shape and ready for action! Well friend, don’t worry, I’ve got you. I suggest you support your little champions escapades by taking them to the Superhero Fun Run this coming weekend. I mean, it’s a no brainer – an undercover superhero conference cleverly disguised as a fun run and carnival in aid of Hospice! You should totally go. And I’m giving away some tickets for you to do just that!
St Francis Hospice’s fun run and carnival takes place on 3rd March in Happy Valley, Nelson Mandela Bay, and it’s going to be exactly what superhero dreams are made of. I’m sure of it. Well, for starters all participants are encouraged to wear a superhero outfit. (Uhm, yes please!) and secondly there will be a bunch of fun activities for the entire family. From performing artists, food stalls and jumping castles, to lawn games and face painting. And guess what, you could even nab the best-dressed Superhero prize!
The event will also be entered into the Recordsetter contest to officially own the record for the largest Superhero Fun Run. So you’ll pretty much be making history. I know, right?
The 3km walk starts at Happy Valley at 07:00, and will proceed down Marine Drive, ending off in Happy Valley again. Entry, including access to the Carnival, is R60 per adults, R30 per child and R150 for a family of four. Corporate packages, from R900, allow branding on the roadside and entry for five staff members, who each receive branded capes and masks.
Enter online at Ticketpros or at Jet, Edgars & Postnet. Tickets can also be purchased from Something Good, Virgin Active Humewood, Brian Bands and at St Francis Hospice. Entry to the Carnival is R20 for adults and R10 per child.
