Become a superhero and raise funds for Worcestershire's Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust

Redditch Editorial 4th Apr, 2021

SUPERHEROES are being sought to help raise cash for the Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust at their latest event.

Organisers are hoping county residents will join eight-year-old Mia Chamberlain to help raise vital funds for their fight against childhood cancer.

Could you help the charity towards breaking down the barriers and help them raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of childhood cancer? If you think you so then charity chiefs want you as part of the GKCCT Super Squad.

You don’t have to run at the speed of light or fly like a bird to be a superhero, your superpower will be to help raise the money needed for them to continue combatting childhood cancer.

On April 28, the charity has invited residents to be part of the GKCCT Super Squad and from the comfort of their home, school or place of work join them to help fund their vital work.

As a superhero you really could do anything like march a mile a day, take part in a readathon, bake sale, run, walk or jog 5k, 10k whatever distance suits you.

Mini superheroes could take on some chores around the house, see how many superhero jumps they can do in a set time.

Every penny raised will go towards the charity’s costs and will help them to continue supporting oncology families.

Anyone who takes part is asked to get in touch with photos of their exploits and special superheroes who raise more than £50 for the Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust will be sent GKCCT medals.

Emma Williams, office and project manager at the Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust said: “We would really love it if we could get as many superheroes taking part, showing their support and their commitment in helping the GKCCT tackle childhood cancer.

“In the UK, a child or young person is diagnosed with cancer every two hours. Survival rates of childhood cancer are improving, but there is still a long way to go and we need superheroes to help us along this journey.

“And of course we want people to have fun and what better way then to dress us as our favourite superhero”.
