On Saturday 30th October, Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association (IMNDA) are looking for the bravest souls to abseil down the Skyview Tower to raise vital funds for their organisation.
They are looking for brave & capable participants to climb 244 steps to the top of the tower and abseil 190 feet down into Smithfield Square! This is going to be a blood curdling scary event and not for the fainthearted!
So anyone out there who wants to blow off the cobwebs this Halloween and do something a little bit different whilst raising money for charity, join us for a physical event at last.
IMNDA is extremely excited to be part of this brand new abseil event this autumn. Twice the height of Croke Park’s Hogan Stand, we dare you to take this on to raise funds for people with MND.
This is the first ever abseiling event down this iconic tower so this is truly a unique opportunity. This huge red brick tower dominates the Smithfield skyline. Building of the structure was completed in 1895.
Go back in time as you climb the 244 winding steps – please be sure you are fit and able for the 16 flights of steps before you sign up. There is no other way up but it’s well worth it for the breath-taking unobstructed views of Dublin stretching as far as Howth and Killiney.
Participants must be over 16 and no abseiling experience is required. This event is running in conjunction with www.ukbungee.co.uk who will provide full training on the day.
UK Bungee Club will get you harnessed up and ready so you can abseil down the tower from the viewing platform with your friends and family cheering you on from the bottom – the ultimate buzz not to be missed!!!
What is Motor Neurone Disease:
Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a progressive neurological condition that attacks the motor neurones, or nerves, in the brain and spinal cord. This means messages gradually stop reaching muscles, which leads to weakness and wasting.
MND can affect how you walk, talk, eat, drink and breathe. However, not all symptoms necessarily happen to everyone and it is unlikely they will all develop at the same time, or in any specific order.
The IMNDA provides specialised services for people affected by this debilitating disease such as equipment on loan, financial assistance towards home help, advice and home visits by MND Nurse.
