Haileybury is to host the Muscle Warriors™ inaugural Family Fun Day including 10k run and a splendid 2k Fancy Dress Toddle all in aid of Muscle Dreams™ – this exciting summer fundraising event takes place on National Family Day on Saturday 5th June 2010 in the stunning grounds of Haileybury, an independent, co-educational school located in Hertfordshire. All proceeds will go towards The Muscular Help Foundation (MHF) and its Muscle Dreams™ programme.
“We hope that everyone participating in our charity’s inaugural Muscle Warrior™ 10k and Family Fun Day to include a 2k Fancy Dress Toddle at Haileybury will help us raise vital funds on what I know will be a day filled with sunshine and a lot of fun!,” says co-founder and CEO of MHF, Michael McGrath.
“With the support of club runners, families and businesses from across the South East region, we’re urging everyone to help us blast past our goal to raise at least £10,000 via the event’s dedicated fundraising webpage – in so doing, we hope to be able to move a little closer towards our wider vision of, in time, delivering 657 Muscle Dreams™ for children with muscular dystrophy – the number of muscles in the human body”
As well as welcoming everyone to the event, Michael will lead the 2k Fancy Dress Toddle in his hi-tech “chariot”, sporting the much sought-after Muscle Warrior™ t-shirt. While the serious runners are slogging around the 10k course, youngsters accompanied by mums, dads, grannies and granddads – and, of course, their teddy bears – will be toddling, wheeling or in Michael’s case ‘powering’ around the 2k course, taking in the magnificent sights of Haileybury including the spectacular quad, the largest academic quadrangle in the UK.
In addition to the serious business of running, other entertainment and activities on the day will include a climbing wall, a soccer academy, archery, a chance to win a car, a small fun fair, face-painters and access to the indoor swimming pool, to a special teddy bear’s picnic, the opportunity to get on court with the Legends Tennis coaching team, and the Paralympic non-contact sport of Boccia (for those who require a wheelchair because of physical disability) that relies on skill and subtlety, rather than size, speed or muscle strength.
