World Homelessness Day Orbit Abseil

Date: This event will take place on Friday 7 October 2022.
Where: The ArcelorMittal Orbit - Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

Fundraising target: £195
Registration fee: £20

We challenge you to go over the edge of ArcelorMittal Orbit this World Homelessness Day! Are you ready for a thriller of a descent down the UK’s tallest sculpture and highest freefall abseil (at 262ft) in aid of St Mungo’s? Take the plunge and get set for an adrenaline fuelled ride back down to earth.

You'll take in the breath-taking views across London including the following iconic buildings:

The Gherkin, St Paul's, Canary Wharf, Wembley Stadium and The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

No prior experience is necessary to take part as you receive a comprehensive safety briefing and all your training and abseiling kit on the day.

We will also have a photographer to capture the moment you start your descent. Do invite your friends and family to cheer you on and capture the moment you land back on the ground!

Please note: The abseil is available to participants aged 18 and over. Those aged between 14-18 need parental consent. The providers for the day will be Wire & Sky (Up at The O2 Roofwalk) who have vast experience of running these types of events. They will provide training on the day.
