Saturday 10th June
You’ll have the chance to abseil 131ft off the summit of the iconic Northern Lights Tower with incredible views from the top.
Feel on top of the world and tick this incredible challenge off your bucket list while raising vital funds to help people with chest, heart and stroke conditions live their lives to the full.
Be brave and set yourself an extraordinary, once in a lifetime challenge to help make sure there’s no life half lived in Scotland!
Date: Saturday 10th June 2023
Location: Northern Lights Tower, Kings Church, Aberdeen, AB23 8BL
No experience is necessary, and you will receive safety and expert guidance throughout.
By signing up to brave the Aberdeen Abseil, you’re doing something spectacular!
We’re asking all our fundraising heroes to promise to raise at least £150 in sponsorship which includes a £20 registration fee. We will provide all the support you need to help you meet and beat your fundraising goal.
Every penny you raise will go towards helping someone in Scotland do more than survive when they return home from hospital with a chest, heart or stroke condition – you’ll help them really live.
You’ll be helping people like Chris, whose life completely changed when he suffered a serious stroke in 2020.
“I was lonely and scared, not knowing if I would see my family again.”
“I was the most active person, a real hands-on dad and husband. I was a footballer and a football coach but stroke has left me paralysed on my left-hand side and now I have to use a wheelchair.
“But I haven’t had to go through all of this on my own. When I got out of hospital after nine months, Gillian from Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland was there for me, and she did so much to help me adapt to my new life.
“A stroke is a scary thing to happen to anyone but being supported by Gillian and a charity like CHSS takes a lot of that fear away. Everyone needs a Gillian in their life after stroke.”
By fundraising at the Aberdeen Abseil, you’ll be helping fund our vital support services so more people across Scotland can get the support they need when they return home from hospital.
If you need any support to make your fantastic fundraising ideas really fly, we’re here to help!
