Hywel Dda Health Charities has announced its 2022 Charity Zip Line Challenge, set to take place on 9th April, which will see 30 brave fundraisers take on the challenge of the world’s fastest seated zip line!

Partnering with Zip World, Hywel Dda Health Charities has secured 30 spaces for fundraisers to take flight on the seated zip line, Phoenix.

Phoenix is at Zip World Tower at the former Tower Colliery site in Aberdare, south Wales, on the edge of the Brecon Beacons. Containing two incredible zip lines, Phoenix is a record-breaker, being the fastest seated zip line in the world, and Zip World’s steepest. Individuals travel at speeds up to 70mph and with four lines situated side by side so family and friends can race together.

Participants will enter with a discounted  £20 registration fee and are then required to raise a minimum of £100 for the charity through a JustGiving or Enthuse page.

The minimum age requirement is seven years old, and under-18s must have a participating adult with them. There must be one participating adult for every three participating children.

Fundraising Officer Katie Hancock said: “We’re really excited about our Zip Line Challenge, we think it will be a truly thrilling day for our fundraisers! If you are interested in creating a truly memorable experience while fundraising for your NHS charity, why not give it a go?”
