Superheroes event at Club Central Menai raises $717 for Muscular Dystrophy Australia

Aspiring superheroes had heaps of fun while raising money for a great cause during a school holiday event at Club Central Menai.

Kids dressed up as their favourite character, had masks painted on their faces and dived into a variety of activities, the most popular of which was slime making.

Muscular Dystrophy is a genetic disorder which results in the progressive deterioration of muscle strength and function and affects up to one in 1000 people in Australia.

“There were plenty of opportunities for the kids to enjoy flexing their muscles and getting crafty whilst raising awareness of a disorder that has a profound impact on people’s lives,” a club spokeswoman said.

“The slime making workshops tapped into the latest obsession, and were sold out.

“Everyone took home some hand-made goo and had a heap of fun getting their hands slimy.

“The muscle men from the next Menai Mania VI paid a visit and provided some great entertainment with arm wrestling and weightlifting competitions.”
