FOAM-filled fun is on the cards at the Kirkwood Hospice It’s A Knockout challenge.
The hospice is holding a charity fundraiser with games and gallons of water and foam to contend with.
Based on the popular TV game show It’s A Knockout, it will feature participants taking part in bizarre tasks while dressed in outlandish costumes.
Often described as a school sports day for adults, the teams will have to carry buckets of water over inflatable bouncy castles and fight the foam to get to the end of an obstacle course.
Kate Leadbeater, of the hospice in Dalton, said: “It is the first time in many, many years we have done this and I thought it would be a great way of raising money.
“It’s something so different, but fun as well and it gives people the chance to do something unique to support the hospice.
“All money raised will go towards patient care, which will benefit so many people who face life-threatening illnesses.”
Businesses, groups of friends or students can enter the event and compete against 15 teams – including the Examiner’s own gladiators who are preparing to join the battle for the champions title.
The hospice relies on fundraising to maintain the high level of palliative care. All money raised on the day will go to the hospice.
The Kirkwood Hospice It’s A Knockout challenge will take place on Saturday July 12 at the Standiforth playing fields in Dalton.
Teams must be made up of ten adults aged over 16 and be reasonably fit.
Teams have to be registered by May 2 and there is a £5 entry fee per person. Participants can raise more in sponsorship money.
