Need for speed

Do you want to support The Christie in 2021? Take on The Christie Challenge and help us keep moving for people with cancer.

If you're taking on a zip wire challenge as part of The Christie Challenge or as a separate fundraising activity, please create a JustGiving page in support of The Christie using the button below.

Please note: you must follow Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing at all times.

If you’re into high speed thrills, a zip wire challenge might be right up your street. And if you do it sponsored, you can also collect some cash for The Christie charity.

You’ll get to fly through the sky at high velocity, all while enjoying amazing views. Strapped into a harness, hurtling down a cable, you need to be sure you aren’t afraid of heights!

Make sure you check the small print before you sign up for a zip wire challenge. You generally have to be fit and healthy, and there might be a weight limit.

If you’re ready to sign up for a charity zip wire challenge, see our list of UK challenges. We also have some other thrilling challenge events, including skydives and bungee jumps.

We can support you if you’ve already registered for a sponsored zip wire event. Just tell us about it with our online form. We’ll send you out a sponsorship pack and free Christie t-shirt, and we can also give you some useful fundraising pointers.
