Superheroe­s for a top cause

- By Isabelle Harris

There was no missing the horde of superheroe­s at Inspira Kids Early Learning Centre yesterday.

The Kialla centre is holding ‘Superhero Week’ to raise awareness of muscular dystrophy.

Muscular dystrophy and related neuromuscu­lar conditions are a group of diseases that cause progressiv­e weakness and loss of muscle mass, affecting about one in 625 or 30,000 Australian­s.

Service director Melissa Penfold said the centre had run the event every year since 2017.

“We try to raise awareness and show support with this event,” she said.

“It’s probably the best week of the year!’’
