Charity’s caped crusaders
On Saturday 9th May at 10am ‘superheroes’ took to Bournemouth seafront ready to take part in the ‘Sponsored Superhero Fun Run’ organised by Shore Idea’s team of youngsters ‘Team Achieve’. Mentored by Fiona Carter and Will Kay from Health-on-Line the team were ready to raise funds for their selected charity Help the Heroes!
Superheroes of all ages turned out for the fun filled event ready to take part in either the 5k or 2k run alongside the beach. With the sun shining down on them, the fun run was a great success with the team managing to raise an impressive £718 for their chosen charity Help the Heroes.
Fiona Carter, Brand and Marketing Manager at Health-on-Line said,
“It was an honour to help mentor Team Achieve, and help them work towards their goal of raising money for Help for Heroes. The boys from Bournemouth School were fantastic and it was their commitment that helped make the event such a success.”
