Wind Speed experience by lead Balloon
About this race:
Each year, Shine hosts an Awareness Week campaign which aims to celebrate, educate and inform about Hydrocephalus and Spina Bifida as we hope to increase knowledge of these complex, life limiting, yet poorly understood conditions.
This year, we're giving you the opportunity to take part in an environmentally friendly 'Virtual' Balloon Races. A safe, ethical, computer simulated alternative to the classic Balloon Race, you can personalise and design your balloon - you can even choose how thick you want the latex to be, and how much helium you'll add to give your balloon the best possible chance of lasting the week and travelling the furthest distance.
If that all sounds too complicated, don't worry! We can use a default balloon.
The race will be launched from Allens Croft Nursery School virtually on the 7th February and run for one week.
