ZipWire Across The Tyne
Sun 24 September 2017, 11:30 – 12:30 BST
What better way to see the Newcastle and Gateshead skyline than by launching off the top of one of the region’s most iconic buildings. We invite all thrill seekers to zip across the River Tyne from the rooftop of BALTIC. At a whopping 45m from the ground, zippers will glide across the river on a 280m zip line experiencing speeds of up to 40mph.
Our event takes place during Blood Cancer Awareness Month and as such we're inviting supporters of other blood cancer charities to join us!
As a Bright Red supporter you can secure your space with 50% off! We ask you raise a minimum of £75 in sponsorship. Funds raised from the event will help us improve patient care, staff development and fund blood cancer research. To be part of Team Bright Red you will need to use the voucher code 'brightred' at time of booking.
As a supporter of another blood cancer charity you can join us for only £50 and raise as much for your chosen charity as you can!
If you would like to block book a team of 6 or more please email Lisa@brightred.org.uk as you may be eligable for a discount.
If you want to take a souvenir of the zip experience home with you, you can! Purchase your GoPro film footage which captures all the action shot from your helmet during the zip.
We ask that everyone arrives promptly for their scheduled time slot. We aim for everyone to zip within an hour of their arrival.
Don't forget we also have our Light Red Walk happening from 7pm. It's a glow stick walk, open to all, in honour of blood cancer patients. Look out for more details!
Please note, all zippers must weigh between 7 and 18 stone. All participants are weighed prior to the zip. Anyone lighter than 7 stone or heavier than 18 stone will not be allowed to zip for health and safety reasons. If you have concerns about any medical conditions please speak to your GP prior to booking. Anyone with disability or mobility restrictions need to contact Bright Red to allow provisions to be made. firstname.lastname@example.org
