Foundation zip slide

Registration is now open for Newcastle United Foundation's zip slide challenge on Saturday, 11th April, 2015.

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 Magpies' official charity.

Entry fee for the zip slide is £30 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 please raise a minimum of £150 in sponsorship (to be sent to the Foundation two weeks after the event in May 2015).

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 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 50,000 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 rely on the enthusiastic support and commitment of Newcastle United fans and the local community. By taking part in this challenge, you are helping us to raise vital funds.
