A team of caped crusaders from the National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society (NRAS) joined forces to power through the London Superhero Run 2014.
The team of 12 from the charity's office in Gardner Road, Maidenhead, raised almost £5,000 to support people suffering with rheumatoid arthritis at the event in London's Regent's Park on Sunday, May 18.
Clare Jacklin, director of external affairs at the charity, said: "The minute I heard there was going to be an opportunity to dress up, I volunteered to take part.
"I can't jump out of aeroplanes or climb Kilimanjaro to raise money for NRAS but surely, I thought to myself, I can trot 10K dressed as wonderpig.
"We can assure everyone who sponsored team NRAS that every penny is appreciated and will go to improving the lives of the 690,000 people living with RA (rheumatoid arthritis) across the UK."
