Are you brave enough to take on the zip line challenge?

The Northern Ireland Hospice is calling out to thrill-seekers across in Coleraine to join them in a fun-filled and breath-taking challenge across the River Lagan in Belfast, on Saturday 25th August.

The challenge will see participants drop from a height of 140ft and zip and slide 1000ft across the River Lagan, reaching exhilarating speeds of 40mph. With the wind in your hair and amazing views across the capital, this is definitely a challenge not to be missed!

Each year Northern Ireland Hospice cares for over 3000 adults, children and young people living with a life-limiting illness. The specialist care and support services are available both at Hospice and also in the patient’s own home and are a life-line to many families at such a difficult time.

Fundraiser for Northern Ireland Hospice, Karen Dunlop commented, “This event offers a popular and exciting challenge in the heart of Belfast and we would love individuals and teams to take that leap of faith and join us! This is the first time Hospice has held such a challenge and spaces will fill up fast. Karen continued, “Our services depend on the support and generosity of the local community. Every £100 raised through this event will help fund a series of complementary therapy sessions for a patient to alleviate pain and reduce stress.”

There is a £40 registration fee to cover the cost of taking part and the charity urges everyone to aim for a minimum sponsorship of £95. To secure your place on this zipline challenge or for further information please visit www.nihospice.org or email fundraising@nihospice.org.
