Zip Wear sign ups exceed 100
Final call for fundraising thrill ride
Date published: 4th October 2017
Over 100 daredevil fundraisers have signed up to ride a zip line from the roof of the Stadium of Light over the River Wear this weekend in aid of North East charity Foundation of Light.
Taking place on Sunday 8th October, participants will zip from the roof of the home of Sunderland AFC, travelling around 250 metres at speeds of up to 25mph, landing on the other side of the River Wear at Liebherr Sunderland Works.
Proceeds from the event will support community education, health and skills programmes run by Black Cats’ charity Foundation of Light.
Financially independent of the football club, the Foundation relies upon fundraising to be able to help 1,000s of local people every week.
We're delighted by the response to Zip Wear and are looking forward to a very exciting event on Sunday.
Thank you to Sunderland AFC and Liebherr who have made this event possible, and all of the fantastic fundraisers who have made the pledge!
