Our team of nurses are searching for superheroes to join in with Shropshire’s biggest inflatable course next week.

Kapow! takes place on Saturday, 27 April and time is running out for people to sign up and take part.

Participants are invited to become superheroes for the day and take on the ten giant inflatables – either solo or as part of a team.

Final preparations are being made ahead of the 5km challenge at the West Midlands Showground in Shrewsbury.

Our events officer Hannah Gamston, is urging people to sign up for the event before online registrations close on Tuesday, 23 April.

She said: “It’s just two weeks until hundreds of super fundraisers descend on Shrewsbury’s West Midlands Showground for Kapow!

“We can’t wait to see everyone come along and have lots of fun on our giant inflatables. Events like this are a great way to raise funds so we can continue to help local people and their families when they need it most.

“Don’t forget to register as soon as possible to avoid having to pay extra on the day.”

The event will help ensure we can be there for families that need its support across Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and Mid Wales.

Among those taking on our event this year include Emily Riley, who will lead her team Riley’s Runners, in memory of her husband David Riley who died at Severn Hospice last year.

The team of seven will conquer the charity challenge on the first anniversary of David’s death, after he received ‘phenomenal’ end-of-life care following diagnosis of an aggressive brain tumour.

Emily, from Shrewsbury, will have her and David’s adopted son Peter, aged two, cheering them as they attempt the course.

Hannah added: “When I first heard Emily’s story I was so touched by how much our care meant to David, his family and friends.

“It’s lovely that they have chosen to celebrate his life in this way while supporting us.”

Registration to sign up for Kapow! costs £20 for adults and £15 for children under 16. Registration will be open on the day of the event but at an increased cost.

Children must be accompanied by an adult, over the age of eight and are taller than 1.2 metres.
