Launch yourself from the most iconic bridge in the North and zip slide across Newcastle’s River Tyne.
We are proud to work in partnership with Zip Slides UK who offer an exciting and challenging experience for many people. Involvement is suited to all levels of fitness and many people find that participation is possible with a range of medical conditions or disabilities. There are places available in April or October 2019.
A few steps away, at Newcastle’s Centre for Life, scientists funded by Muscular Dystrophy UK are making significant breakthroughs to identify new treatments and strategies that are helping to shape our understanding and knowledge of muscle-wasting conditions.
Your bravery to make the leap and slide across the Tyne will help us to continue supporting the 70,000 people in the UK living with muscular dystrophy.
Registration costs just £10 and by pledging to raise at least £100 in sponsorships you will ensure our work continues to make a difference in the fight against muscle-wasting conditions.
Please note it is important that you understand what is involved, declare and discuss any medical conditions that may prevent your involvement.
