Calling all adrenaline junkies!

Registration is now open for
Newcastle United Foundation's charity Zip Slide challenge on Saturday 20th April 2013.

Be part of the 130 strong
zip slide team and not only will you get the chance to zip slide alongside the pitch at your beloved St James' Park, you will also be supporting the Magpie's official charity.

Entry fee for the zip slide is £30.00 per person which will cover the cost of staging the event. The entry fee ensures that all the money you raise in sponsorship will go to the Newcastle United Foundation.

We then ask that you to please raise a minimum £140 in sponsorship (to be sent to the Foundation 2 weeks after the event in May 2013). We will send you a fundraising pack with lots of advice and tips on how to reach your fundraising target once you have registered. Every participant will receive a certificate of appreciation on completing the zip wire.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you need any more details. Please bear in mind there are limited spaces available for this event and places will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.Therefore, please register as soon as possible!

Newcastle United Foundation uses the power of football and Newcastle United to change lives and build better futures. Every year, we make a real difference to the lives of 38,000 disadvantaged children, young adults and families across the North East by continually tackling issues such as childhood obesity, youth unemployment, and making sport accessible to all.

As an independent charity, we have to raise over £1.2 million annually and rely on the enthusiastic support and commitment of Newcastle United fans and the local community to do this. By taking part in this challenge, you are helping us to do this. Thank you.

For more information and to pay for your £30 registration, please call the Foundation on 0191 201 8451 or email
