Treetops Adventure Challenge for Hospice

Join Southern Area Hospice on Sunday 16th September 2012 and release your inner Tarzan or Jane as they swing from the Treetops.

The Treetops Adventure Challenge will give participants the chance to make like Tarzan and climb through the trees, slide across high wires, crawl through tunnels, cross rope bridges, walk the plank and zip down to the ground – all while generating funds for the Southern Area Hospice through raising sponsorship.

The course comprises of over 40 challenging elements set at varying heights above the ground (in some areas you could be suspended 70ft up). You’ll find yourself tackling fun obstacles such as rope bridges, scramble nets, zip wires, Tarzan swings, and the King Louis Descent. The King Louis Descent is a Powerfan drop where you can experience an adrenaline free-fall drop in safety and without needing to deploy a parachute or strap yourself by the ankle to a bungee cord.

The course has been built with fun and adventure in mind and the treetops obstacles and zip wire provide exactly that – fun for all. All participants must be 14 or over and over the height of 4ft 8″ (1.42m). Any children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult on the course.

To reserve your place all you need to do is complete a registration form and return it together with your £20 non-refundable deposit, and commit to raising a further £80 in sponsorship. On receipt of your registration form, Southern Area Hospice will send you further details of the day and a fundraising pack which includes information on how you can start your fundraising.

To book your place please contact the Fundraising Office on (028) 302 51333, or email
