KAPOW Fundraising Event – 30th June @ Temple Newsam, Leeds

Time: 11am start

Run, jog or walk around the Kapow! Superhero Challenge obstacle course, raising funds for the animals we care for in our local community. Take on 10 inflatable obstacles including a foam maze – set over 5km in Temple Newsam estate.

You’ll start at our 4m high climb, then bash your way through the inflatable pole section, stop off for a quick bath in the foam pit, crawl through our 10-meter long inflatable tunnels.

 

Next up you take on our 2m high giant rollers, then it’s on to the foam maze – can you find your way through?
After you’ve escaped the maze it’s time to take on our 3m inflatable wall and then finally you’re on to Big Bertha! You’ll climb up the 40 feet to the top, admire the view and then slide all the way down into even more foam.
You can enter as a team or take on the challenge alone and raise money for our branch!

If you think you’re up to the challenge come and join us!

Please note: All entrants under 16 must be over 1.2m tall and each group of 6 children must be accompanied by at least two adults. Even heroes need a hand every now and then!
