Abseil The Falkirk Wheel

Soar to new heights and take part in our Abseil The Falkirk Wheel to raise money for Maggie's.

Date: 16 March 2024

Where: The Falkirk Wheel, Lime Road, Falkirk FK1 4RS

Registration Fee: £25

Sponsorship target: £150

Join us on Saturday 16 March and abseil off the iconic Falkirk Wheel.

The Falkirk Wheel is 100 ft (30 m) tall and is the world's first, and only, rotating boat lift. Prepare to enjoy spectacular views as you abseil from the top of the wheel all the way down to the ground.

No experience is necessary – expert guidance will be provided throughout. This is the perfect personal challenge to raise money for people with cancer at your local Maggie's centre.

Why abseil for Maggie's

Here at Maggie's we are one big team, and we can't wait for you to join us! We will support you every step of the way, from helping you with fundraising inspiration to cheering for you as you take the leap of faith.

As a valued member of Team Maggie's, you will get:

  • encouragement and support on the day from our fundraising team
  • a free Maggie's T-shirt, as well as a certificate
  • continued support, ideas and advice throughout your fundraising
  • the reassurance that you are making a difference to the lives of people with cancer and those who love them.

The £150 you raise could pay for one of our Getting Started sessions for people who have just been diagnosed, so they can find out everything they need to know about cancer and treatment.
