This year the hospital will be launching a Guinness World Records attempt on the day for the most people dressed as Superheroes in one place. The current record stands at 1,580 and was set in September 2010 at Paramount Studios in LA to promote the Dreamworks movie ‘Megamind’.

The hospital is calling on people of all ages from all over Ireland to take part in this fantastic family fun day out to raise vital funds for the hospital and be part of the Guinness World Records attempt.

Last year, over 1,000 adults and children donned their favourite super hero costumes and took part in the inaugural 5km run raising over €130,000 for the hospital.

If you want to become a Super Hero for the day and take part in the Guinness World Records attempt please contact 1890 507508 or log onto www.superherofunrun.ie The fundraising target is €100 per adult, €150 per family.

Children enter free and all proceeds raised will go towards Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin.
