Being heroes just for one day to help St Michael’s Hospice

People turned out in force on Sunday in a heroic effort to raise funds for St Michael’s Hospice.

Donning superhero costumes they took on a 5k fun run as well as tackling a series of giant inflatable obstacles in Alexandra Park.

It was all part of Kapow! - a brand new summer challenge event.

Lou-P Fitness organised a fun warm up before the event got underway, getting contestants pumped up with some inspiring theme tunes.

Kirsty Williams, from the hospice said: “The event was the perfect way to get a group of friends and family together and have fun while supporting the hospice.”
