Jessops Superheroes will be taking place on Sunday 21st May at Graves Park. The aim of the event is not only to raise money, but also to celebrate the superheroes that care for and save the lives of Sheffield’s tiniest patients each day.

More than 7000 babies are born at Jessops Hospital every year. The hospital supports families through all stages of pregnancy, from conception to care after birth. This includes caring for critically ill and premature babies in one of the largest and most specialist, Neonatal Intensive Care Units in the country.

Babies being treated on the unit require constant 24 hour care, sometimes for weeks or even months. Each day can be a struggle and your support can help these families, during what can be one of the most stressful times of their lives.

The day will start at 10.30am where you can choose from a buggy friendly 2.5k route, or a more challenging 4k route, with a few bumps and lumps along the way. Bikes, Trikes, buggies, slings and even dads shoulders are welcome to help you around the course.

Rather than buying a ticket for the event, the charity are asking that each attendee raises £15 in sponsorship; with 100% of the money raised going to help the Jessops Hospital continue their great work.
