Treetops Hospice Care provides nursing care and emotional support for anyone affected by a life-limiting illness in Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.

Treetops supports people with illnesses such as cancer, motor neurone disease and multiple sclerosis. It also supports their carers and families. All services are provided free of charge.

The hospice has to raise more than £3 million every year to run. That’s about £7,500 per day. 70% of this comes from charitable donations and fundraising events.

All services are provided free of charge, and are not means-tested. For more information or to access any of our services, phone the hospice on 0115 949 1264, email info@treetopshospice.org.uk or visit www.treetopshospice.org.uk

The KAPOW! Superhero Challenge

Sunday 1 September 2019

The event village (and on-the-day registration) opens at 10am. Waves set off at 11am, 12noon, 1pm and 2pm. The event closes at 3pm.

The event will take place at Markeaton Park, Derby, DE22 4AA

5km course, where participants tackle 10 giant inflatable obstacles. It is run by specialist event organisers, Extreme Adventure Ltd, in partnership with Treetops Hospice Care.

Participants are asked to raise sponsorship money to enable Treetops Hospice Care to continue to provide nursing care and emotional support for adults and their families in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.

The event takes place in waves of 200 people, so that there aren't queues for obstacles and our superheroes stay safe. Registration for Wave 1 will open first. Once Wave 1 is fully booked, we will open up Wave 2, then Wave 3, until the event is at full capacity.

If you want to run with friends or family, please make sure that you sign up at the same time, and for the same wave, as places cannot be transferred.

Contact the fundraising team at Treetops Hospice Care on 0115 949 1264 or events@treetopshospice.org.uk
