The inaugural Muscle Warriors 10k run and Family Fun Day will take place in the grounds of Haileybury on Saturday, 5 June 2010 in aid of the Muscular Help Foundation (MHF).
MHF delivers unforgettable Muscle Dreams designed to help children and young people in the UK whose lives are afflicted by the muscle-wasting disease, muscular dystrophy (MD), the opportunity to live a dream, or perhaps fulfil a cherished ambition.
Muscular Dystrophy is the single biggest genetic killer of children in our world today. With some 75,000 UK sufferers being robbed of their mobility, independence and often their lives, MHF delivers experiences for people directly affected by this debilitating disease. Muscle Warriors are those generous-hearted people who run marathons, climb mountains and engage in all sorts of crazy activity to help create Muscle DreamsTM by raising much-needed funds.
"We hope that everyone participating in the inaugural Muscle Warrior 10k and Family Fun Day at Haileybury will be able to help us raise funds," says co-founder and CEO of MHF, Michael McGrath.
"There are 657 muscles in the human body and that's how many Muscle Dreams we'd like to create with the help of everyone enjoying the Fun Day."
As well as welcoming everyone to the event, Michael will lead the Fancy Dress 2k run in his hi-tech "chariot". 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 around the 2k course, taking in all the spectacular sights of Haileybury.
As part of National Family Week 2010 and in conjunction with the Family Week Sports Day on Saturday 5 June, we are also looking to set the Guinness World Record for the largest three-legged race (most pairs), toghether with other locations. Please do join us if you feel able!
In addition to the run, other activities on the day will include a climbing wall, a soccer academy, archery, a chance to win a BMW/Mercedes for a hole in one, botcha/power chair football, access to the indoor swimming pool, a teddy bear's picnic and a small fun fair. There will also be live music provided.
