Festive Extravaganza – Super Hero Series!

On Sunday 1st December we attended our very first Super Hero Series event, the Winter Wonder Wheels at the very cold but beautiful Dorney Lake in Windsor, one of the amazing sites of the London 2012 Olympics. In attendance from Tree of Hope was our Head of Family Support Lee who became Tree of Hope’s very own Christmas fairy for the day alongside Marketing Manager Georgie, with Tree of Hope families who took part, Jack Gower and Jemima Syvret.

This is Tree of Hope’s first year as charity partner meaning this is a free event for families to take advantage of and use as a fundraiser for their fundraising campaigns. The day was fantastic, swarmed with like minded families championing everyday superhero’s by taking part in a 1,5 or 10km race around Dorney lake, in whatever fashion.

Our team Captain Jack, Lee and Jemima all took part int he 5km race Jack, training in his racing wheelchair, Lee by bike and Jemima in her specialised wheelchair buggy, accompanied by her big brothers and Mum and Dad. Jemima completed the last 100 metre’s in her Kaye Walker, a euphoric moment for everyone spectating as she crossed the finish line!

Jack whose dream it is one day to compete as a Paralympic athlete used this as training, one of many events he takes part in, on top of the hours he puts in every week with his trainer and always accompanied by dedicated Mum Ella, completed 5km in under 20 minutes! Jack is fundraising for equipment as he grows to ensure he can train in the best way possible and keep aiming to achieve his dream!

Check out Instagram story to see our full documentation of the whole day!

At the event, Mum Ella told us “Jack has found something that he absolutely loves and that is so important. For such a long time he always felt like his disability held him back but his mentality now that he has his racing is totally different, it’s just brilliant.”

Are you looking for your next challenge fundraiser? Something that will involve all the family? This sure is the perfect event for it!

We are signed up as a charity partner for the Summer Tri series – the main event taking place at Dorney Lake on Saturday 15th August 2020!

Either Team up and complete 3 challenges in a team of 3, grab a sidekick and prepare to tow your superhero in the water and pull and push them around the bike and push/run sections, or fly solo for those who want to see the mission through from start to finish! Whatever you choose, Swim, Run/Walk and Wheel yourselves to achieving your Super Hero medal!

There really is something to suit everyone at this amazing event! The crowds spurring you on every moment and makes for a brilliant fundraiser for a families campaign that you can invite your family and friends along to!
