Calling all superheroes!

Join us on Saturday 18 May and become a real life superhero for charity.

Gateshead parkrun is supporting QE Charitable Funds with a special run in the beautiful setting of Saltwell Park in Gateshead.

Taking place from 9am (prompt) on Saturday 18 May, you will be able to run, walk, fly or teleport your way around the family-friendly route and feel like a superhero as you cross the finish line.  The run will start at the Almond Pavilion, at the top of the Northern Field in Saltwell Park.

Fancy dress is optional, but we would like to encourage everyone to dress for the theme and come as your favourite superhero character. Remember to wear appropriate footwear for running or walking.

Getting sponsors

QE Charitable Funds relies heavily on the help and generosity of our fundraisers and donors. Without you we wouldn’t be able to support the QE Hospital. So why not become a real superhero and raise the much-needed sponsorship for your local hospital.  You can even choose which ward or department you would like to fundraise for.  If you wish, you can hand in your money to QE Charitable Funds on the day of the event.
