Become a superhero for the day! 

Superhero Walk

On Sunday 1st October, families and individuals will gather to take part in a sponsored walk around the University Park campus, raising essential funds to support life-changing research happening at the Children’s Brain Tumour Research Centre (CBTRC). We need help from our local community to steward the walk route, and help us pull off the University’s fundraising event of the year, by being a true Superhero!

How can you help? 

Whether you’re a member of our alumni community, are living in Nottinghamshire, a friend of the University, are a proud supporter of CBTRC, or you simply want to dress up and help a good cause, we’d love you to be involved! 

The Superhero Walk is part of the 20th anniversary events for CBTRC and all of the amazing work they have done to save hundreds of children’s lives. As a Superhero Walk Steward, you’ll be looking after the public - in true superhero style – making sure that everybody has a safe and fun day, directing people along the walk route, and giving help, advice, and information to participants and spectators helping to raise vital funds for the Children’s Brain Tumour Research Centre. 

We would love for our stewards to dress up in style with our superhero theme on the day, however this is optional. A friendly and approachable style is a must!

What are the benefits of being involved? 

By taking part in this fun one-day volunteering activity, you’ll play an important role in a fantastic fundraising campaign, helping to create a brighter future for children with brain tumours. 

When is the Superhero Walk? 

The Superhero Walk takes place on our University Park campus on Sunday 1st October, between 9am-3pm. 

Stewards would need to arrive at the allocated meeting point at 10am and would be expected to be in post until about 1pm. You’ll be stood up or moving about for the majority of this time, cheering people on and checking everyone is okay. Don’t worry we’ll make sure that you are paired with a superhero side-kick so that you aren’t on your own. 

We’d like all of our Superhero Walk Stewards to attend a training session to help prepare you for your role. There are two to choose from (both taking place in September) and you can indicate your preferred training date and time on your application form.

Get involved!

Apply today to take part in the Superhero Walk as a Steward. We’ll then contact you to give you more details about the opportunity.
