At Home Superheroes Challenge

It is a month-long challenge starting on Saturday 23rd of July- 20th August. We have secured 500 packs to enable islanders with disabilities and their families / friends to take part FOR FREE.  

This month-long challenge is to encourage our community to try something new, go a little further than you’ve gone before or simply unite with family and friends to share a super passion and do something together! 

Superhero Series isn’t just about encouraging islanders to be more physically active but also hopes to encourage islanders with a disability to set themselves a small challenge and maybe find new strengths they never thought they had. 

Participants set themselves a challenge to complete during the month, they can Choose whatever inspires them to find their Power! run, walk, cycle, swim, row,  you may prefer a sensory challenge such as cooking, art or singing, or use a combination of all of that!. It might be that they want to try cycling for the first time, go for a family walk or challenge themselves to complete a set distance over the month. They also may prefer a sensory challenge such as cooking or art. 

WHO CAN ENTER – Anyone or any age! 

Participants can enter as a team or individually or unite with friends, family, school or work colleagues to complete your Find You Power Challenge. All we ask is that if you are a solo participant or are part of a team, at least one of you would consider yourself as having a disability (of any kind)!
