Get your Superhero costumes ready! Move More Jersey have teamed up with the Superhero Series to bring you a mission to keep you super-active this summer!
Their mission is simple: to create fun, full-throttle mass-participation sports events where people with disabilities (AKA Everyday Superheroes) call the shots and don’t have to worry about cut-off times or equipment restrictions. For all the challenges you can either fly solo or team up with family and friends to do as much or as little as you wish, with as much or as little support as you need.
This year, At Home Superheroes is coming to Jersey! It can be completed anywhere (in your living room, garden, neighbourhood) in any way (walking, running, pushing, wheeling) you wish! You can also fly solo or unite as team with your household or remotely using an app.
There’s a distance of 20km to aim for, but feel free to choose a shorter or longer goal if you wish, depending on your individual circumstances. Just give it your all and you’ll be Superheroes in our eyes!
The challenge can be completed any time between 15 June and 15 July 2020 and every who enters will receive a super race pack and access to a dedicated app – so you can share your progress and photos with the whole Superhero community if you wish.
“We are absolutely delighted to see Move More Jersey get behind our At Home Superheroes event. Jersey is an amazing island with so many opportunities for people to get active. It’s great to have the ‘Jersey Ninjas’ team Captained by our Celebrity Liz Johnson taking part, and we hope they will inspire others to get involved and unlock their inner superpower. Marvel will be bringing the epic energy of its iconic Superhero characters to participants’ homes and neighbourhoods through lots of downloadable games, signs and dressing up ideas to help participants feel like a true Superhero.”
Sophia Warner, Founder of the Superhero Series.
