Superhero Foundation, "inspiring and empowering people to achieve their fundraising dream."

James, 37, is a welder and lives just outside of Gloucester with his wife Kate, who's a nurse, and two children. His three year old daughter Charlotte has cerebral palsy and has been wheelchair-bound for her entire life. There was an operation Charlotte could have, in America, that would enable her to walk. We're very proud to announce that the £20,000 target to get Charlotte out to the States for this life-changing treatment, was a huge success.
In a non-stop heroic feat, Dad James for more than 55 hours (covering 90 miles), trekked up and down Robinswood Hill in Gloucester until he climbed the equivalent of the height of Mount Everest. Only James' ascensions counted, meaning he needed to climb Robinswood Hill exactly 75 times in a row. The challenge pushed the everyday man, beyond his limits, in the hope that his daughter might walk.
James said "I couldn't of done it without my wife, Kate, who has been a rock throughout this entire fundraising journey. Although I did doubt myself whether I could complete the challenge, like any parent would know, you'd do anything for your kids. I'm just happy that Charlotte's life is pain-free."
