Variety – The Children’s Charity invites you to become a participant in its 2014 Superhero 5k/1 Mile Fun Run event at Memorial Hall, Fairmount Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Saturday, September 20, 2014.
Variety – The Children’s Charity's friends, families and community partners will band together as superheroes to run, walk, push or pull to help make a difference in the lives of kids with physical and developmental disabilities. Let's help raise awareness of the challenges they face...and conquer...each and everyday. They are our true SUPERHEROES! This race event will welcome runners, walkers and participants of all levels, ages, and abilities and is the perfect opportunity for the Greater Philadelphia community to come out to support Variety – The Children’s Charity and the children with physical and developmental disabilities it serves.
For over 78 years, Variety – The Children’s Charity has continued its mission of building independence and self-confidence in children and youth with disabilities. Only through your continued support, as well as through the support of our other various community partners, will we be able to continue to build upon the programming at our Camp and Developmental Center, located in Worcester, Pennsylvania, or continue to offer a unnique summer camp experience to our kids who may otherwise not have such an opportunity.
Variety serves many children and families affected by both physical and intellectual disabilities throughout the Delaware Valley. The primary source of funding for the 2014 Superhero 5k/1 Mile Fun Run is through fundraising and community partner sponsorship. The funds raised will help ensure the success of our initiatives and programming.
