Kids with Capes
Join the Superhero Fun ‘Run’
Haywards Heath, 30th April, 9:30am


On Sunday 30th April, Kangaroos is taking over the MSM fun run at Victoria Park in Haywards Heath.


This year's theme…SUPERHEROES! We would love to see as many children and adults as possible donning a hero mask, cape or full-blown fancy dress to run 100m, and raise money for Kangaroos by getting sponsored by family and friends.

You can get sponsored by downloading our sponsorship form, or by setting up a JustGiving that is linked to our profile via the buttons to the right.


The race will take place on flat grass and will be accessible for buggies and power wheelchairs.


Runners can head to the Kangaroos stall for superhero activities before and after the run. Every participant in the fun run receives a medal.
