What is it?

Calling all superheroes! Wish you could fly? How about taking on a zipwire from the historic Tyne Bridge? Soar for nearly 300m across the River Tyne, if you are brave enough!

This event is one for the adrenaline junkies and takes place in April and October. What better way to tick another activity off your bucket list whilst also raising money to help us provide services and care to local people who need it.
