Simon's Heroes is a local charity which aims to improve the quality of life and make a positive difference to local children in need. The charity raises money through sponsored events including obstacle runs, fun days and galas that help them to provide resource and opportunities that are not always available through the NHS and other funding routes, but go a long way towards helping children with life limiting illnesses lead more independent and fulfilling lives. This event will help to generate much needed funds for and awareness about the group, as well as providing some muddy fun on natural trails.
The event is dedicated to Karen Abbott, a very inspirational lady and dearly loved member of the charity, who sadly passed away in March 2016. Karen made a huge contribution to Simon's Heroes, having participated in countless races, raising funds and offering her support when needed.
