Early-bird entry open for local NHS charity’s Superhero Family Fun Run

Member News

As we well know, not all superheroes wear capes and this July you can be a superhero yourself by taking part in Northamptonshire Health Charity’s first-ever Superhero Family Fun Run at Wicksteed Park in Kettering.

Northamptonshire Health Charity is the independent charity supporting three local NHS Trusts in Northamptonshire by funding projects and initiatives above and beyond what the NHS provides. The charity’s mission is to enhance patient care and experience and support NHS staff wellbeing.

Open to all ages and abilities, the 5K event is taking place from 10am on Sunday 3 July. It can be a fun day out for all the family, including your four-legged friends! Whether you choose to run, jog or walk the distance you will all be superheroes to our local NHS teams.

Take advantage of the early-bird entry prices on offer until 31 March – Adult £13; Child (5-15) £8; Family Ticket (2 adults, 2 children) £38; Under 5s Free.

While all proceeds from the entry fees will go towards the charity’s Twinkling Stars appeal for the new maternity bereavement suite at Kettering General Hospital, you are welcome to raise funds for the ward or department that means the most to you and your family at either Kettering General Hospital, Northampton General Hospital, or at one of the community or mental health hospitals under Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.

Prizes will be up for grabs for the best-dressed superheroes, whether you are Superman, Wonder Woman, or dressed as one of our NHS Heroes. It is a great opportunity to celebrate all key workers throughout the COVID pandemic so you are encouraged to dress up as your favourite postie, bin man or shop worker. However, there is no obligation to dress up if it isn’t your thing.
All finishers will receive a medal and a bottle of water at the finish line.

Also, Wicksteed Park is offering all finishers a discounted entry for a wristband ticket at £15 per person for the rides and attractions for the day.

Remember, the early-bird entry prices are available until 31 March so grab your tickets now at the charity’s website https://northamptonshirehealthcharity.co.uk/events/superhero-fun-run/ or contact the team if you have any queries. Call 01604 626927 or email greenheart@nhcf.co.uk
