Could you evade capture in Southampton?
The Rose Road Association is hoping to raise £15,000 by challenging teams to cross 7.5 miles across Southampton using no public or private transport without being caught on camera, in a brand new event inspired by Channel 4’s Hunted called Escape & Evade.
Rose Road is a local charity that works throughout Hampshire, making a positive difference to the lives of young people with disabilities and their families. The charity has to raise vital funds in order to run services, such as the provision of emergency overnight care for a young person with disabilities during times of difficulty.
Sarah, who’s child Sasa is supported by Rose Road, said “The support from Rose Road helps keep us together and has a made a huge difference to our family. If Rose Road was stopped, it would be quite disastrous, for us and many hundreds of local families”.
Escape & Evade is happening on the 18th February, when teams of 4 will be set off from Rose Road’s centre in Lordshill, and will have to travel on foot to the Royal Victoria Country Park. The winning team will be the one with the quickest time, but there will be time penalties for every time a member of the team is captured on camera by one of the pursuer team.
The event will be a great way to get together with your friends, family or colleagues, and challenge your planning, evading and team work skills to the max! Or, if you think you work better as a lone wolf, you can also be a pursuer and be part of the team tracking down the escapees.
Eleanor Deans, Corporate and Events Fundraiser said, “We are really excited about Escape & Evade. We hope that this new challenge will appeal to all, as it promises to be a fun filled day. All of the funds raised by the teams that take part will help Rose Road to continue supporting the young people that access our services across Hampshire, and so we hope to see lots of supporters take part”.
