Everyone has the superpower to fundraise for RSBC and help support blind and partially sighted children, young people and their families.

RSBC is participating in the Be a Superhero Series 2024, a sports series that encourages people to meet challenges, empower individuals with disabilities, and fundraise for a worthy cause.

The funds raised from your participation in the events will support RSBC’s important work in providing support and services to blind and partially sighted children, young people, and their families. By getting involved, you’ll be making a significant contribution to those in need.

We have limited places available, so please contact us to reserve your place and receive more information about fundraising from our Volunteer Fundraising team 

What is the Superhero Series?

It’s the UK’s one and only disability sports series for the Everyday Superhero! The mission is simple: to create fun, full-throttle, mass-participation sports events where people with disabilities – AKA Everyday Superheroes – call the shots and don’t have to worry about cut-off times or equipment restrictions.

For all the missions you can either fly solo or team up with family and friends to do as much or as little as you wish, with as much or as little support as you need.

Check out last year’s Channel 4 highlights programme starring you, the Everyday Superhero!

The Super Challenges:

  • 4 SUPER events every year – 2 live, 2 At Home
  • The ethos is ‘anything goes’ – no cut-off times and all gadgets and gismos (from floats to trikes) welcome
  • 100% accessible and inclusive
  • It’s all about fun. Masks and capes are positively encouraged!

Who can join the missions? Everyone is welcome. All we ask is that all solo entrants, or at least one team member, consider themselves to have a disability of any kind.

How? Anything goes, see details in the specific event and ideas.

Dress code: A Superhero costume, of course!

Super Race Packs: All entrants will receive a Super Race Pack in the post, including a medal, T-shirt and finish line tape for those celebratory finish-line moments. More information and FAQ:  Superhero Series
