Inclusive for All

The Superhero Series Triathlon is back for another year, and this time AbleChildAfrica have several spaces available for superheroes to join in with the fun! This event is an exciting and different mass-participation challenger, where people with disabilities call the shots, cut-off times are non-existent and the focus is on taking part and having fun!

As with all triathlons, the challenge will include a section of running, swimming and cycling.

There are three ways for superheroes to take part:

  • Flying Solo (taking on the mission solo)
  • Team Up (friends and family can help to complete a section of the race)
  • Super Sidekick (recruit a sidekick to power you around the whole course!)

Teams can choose how best to use their super powers to get around the course – the event is flexible and all about the best way to support our superheroes.

Participants can also choose from a range of levels of triathlon:

  • Super Sprint (150m swim, 3k bike, 1k push/run)
  • Half Tri (400m swim, 10k bike, 2.5k push/run)
  • Full Tri (750m swim, 20k bike, 5k push/run)

Fundraising for AbleChildAfrica

80% of people with disabilities live in developing countries, and 150 million are children. We need your superhero help to help us fight stigma, prejudice and social exclusion and to power the lives of our fellow superheroes around the world!

We are asking our amazing Superheroes to pledge to raise £275 each towards our work with children with disabilities and young people in sub-Saharan Africa.

While you are preparing for your challenge, you’ll receive:

  • An AbleChildAfrica fundraising pack, including posters for events, sponsorship forms, and helpful fundraising tips and tricks
  • Regular communications without our fundraising team with ideas for events and information about the work we do
  • A dedicated AbleChildAfrica contact who will provide super-charged support to help you reach your fundraising target
  • The knowledge that you are supporting an organisation which, in 2018 alone, supported over 2,470 children and youth with disabilities, trained 901 teachers with inclusive teaching methods, worked with over 850 parents and carers of children with disabilities and undertook advocacy work with 74 government officials
