WHO ARE WE?
We have a history of putting on world class events – and now we’re calling on caped crusaders, their sidekicks and wannabes to join us in our latest call to action, the Super Hero Charity Dash. While the inaugural event will be in Cape Town, our dream is to unite legions of super heroes across the country for various deserved causes.
Your first task will be to leave your base on Wednesday, 21 March 2018 and transform into your favourite heroic character whether it’s Superman, Wonder Woman, Iron Man or the Incredible Hulk… In fact, you might even be a superhero making your first bow! Simply, if you can put smiles on kids’ faces, we need you! Secondly, the only superpower you’re going to need is the ability to cover a choice of 2,5km or 5km and deliver a gift halfway through. You can choose to walk, crawl, fly, skip or run the distance… it’s up to you!
What do we mean by a gift? We encourage each person to bring along a gift suited to the charity's needs - items on their wish list include toiletries, nappies, educational toys and puzzles, art and crafts. Any gift no matter how big or small will make such a difference to the lives of many children and families.
WHY WE NEED YOU…
Every child needs a hero, and the Super Hero Charity Dash will give you the chance of being a superhero to a child in need. Our vision and our ultimate aim, is to ensure that each and every child and baby has a place of safety, food and clothing. We all know that giving back has a multitude of benefits, not only for those on the receiving end but those doing the giving too which is why we are looking for thousands of you to join us in the Super Hero Charity Dash.
CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation of South Africa (CHOC) has been chosen as our beneficiary for our next event. CHOC is the only organisation that provides comprehensive country-wide support for children with cancer and other life-threatening blood disorders, and their families. The organisation was established in 1979 by parents of children diagnosed with cancer. These parents recognised the emotional, financial and other hardships faced by parents and other family members, as well as children undergoing outpatient treatment.
For close on four decades their holistic approach has evolved to ensure children are diagnosed early, access paediatric oncologist care, and are supported throughout the lengthy treatment phase, which can last up to three years. CHOC also promotes early detection and plays a leading advocacy role.
Woodside Special Care Centre is a residential home caring for 80 profoundly intellectually and physically disabled residents and is situated in Rondebosch East, Cape Town, South Africa. Since its inception in 1976 Woodside has worked diligently towards building a home of safety and security for its residents, all of whom require specialized care and who are unable to remain within their family units.
