Ultimate Zipwire Challenge

Challenge yourself and friends to transform lives of families living with Huntington’s disease by taking part in the Ultimate Zipwire Challenge.

Due to the current situation with coronavirus this event has been rescheduled until Saturday 12th September. Registration is open to anyone interested in taking part and making a difference for families living with Huntington’s disease

 

Conquer the 14 zip course, and raise £99 to help us build a better future for families living with Huntington’s disease (HD) in Scotland.

 

Huntington’s disease is a cruel and incurable brain disease that devastates families across the generations. But with the help of our community SHA reaches families with a lifeline of support to help them meet the severe and complex challenges of HD.

 

This ultimate challenge involves 14 zip wires over a 2km course in the beautiful Cairngorms National Park. It may start off nice and easy but the zips get bigger and faster as you go along the course with the last big one at 550m long at 40mph!

 

Take on this challenge and raise money to fund this lifeline support for the HD community.
