WHO/WHAT:

Performers from Marvel Universe LIVE! will provide children of The Boys and Girls Club of the Mississippi Valley in Moline an opportunity to let their inner Super Hero come out and play. Participants, ages 6 - 12 will be treated to an on-site Super Hero Training Camp, where they'll get to learn "behind the scenes" demonstrations of how the Marvel characters come to life in the show. They will be taught Super Hero poses, fine tune their physical fitness and participate in Super Hero Shuttle Races to ultimately prep their Super Hero status.

The children will complete the afternoon by witnessing a show demo with two Marvel "special guests" and take part in a photo opportunity with them.

WHEN:

Wednesday, Aug. 1 - 2:00p.m. until 2:45 p.m.

Photo and interview opportunities are available to the Media.
