A fun run has raised more than £5,000 for the Lennox Children’s Cancer Fund in Romford. 

189 runners took part in the third annual 5k Superhero Fun Run on Sunday, more than in previous years. 

There was a large range of participants, with the youngest person being just four and a half months old while the oldest was 74 years old.

The route took them around Raphael Park, Romford while kids enjoyed playing in bouncy castles, nerf shoot-outs and an inflatable assault course.

Additional activities included a giant inflatable slide, sumo wrestling and face painting, which were free for superhero runners under 13-years-old.

“We just didn’t expect so many people to turn up on the day! 189 runners took part in the fun run itself, and so many more people just came along to enjoy the fun day and the atmosphere,” said event organiser, Claire Foale. 

“We think we had more than 400 people there, all having a great time!”

Carly Faiers got the runners going with a warm up routine. Mascot, Lenny the Lion, also helped spur them on by taking part in the first part of the race. 

Havering’s new Mayor, Michael Deon Burton, was the special guest and handed out finisher medals at the end, which were donated by Trophyland in Hornchurch.

Goodie bags were also given out. They had items provided by: Rascal Confectionery, Tesco at Gallows Corner, Asda in Romford, Steve Weller and Helen Nye!

“We’re so grateful to everyone who contributed to the success of this event, but none more so than those who donated items or services and the volunteers who gave up their Sunday to help out,” said event organiser, Vicky Nash. 

There were 26 volunteers who helped keep the event going while Steve Henderson, from Henderson Perry Entertainment, volunteered his services as DJ for the whole day.

Lennox Children’s Cancer Fund provide care grants to kids suffering from cancer and their families. 

They also run two luxury holiday homes which allow 96 families to have a holiday each year.  

The charity has been helping people since 1992.
