On a Mission Zipwire Challenge

Get harnessed up and get ready for the most exhilarating event of the year!

Soar through the skies at over 70mph, above two of the most breath-taking backdrops Wales has to offer, all whilst supporting those affected by cancer across the country.


Saturday 1st October

Zip World Tower
Treherbert Road
Hirwaun, Aberdare
CF44 9UF

Registration: £25

Fundraising Target: £100

Take on the Phoenix, the world’s fastest seated zipwire!
You’ll travel at speeds up to 70mph and with four lines situated side by side, you can race friends and family! The first zip line takes you down Rhigos mountain, across the Llyn Fawr reservoir, offering stunning views of the Cynon Valley and enjoying the very fastest speeds, racing into the landing point as you fly above the trees.
The second line returns you back to Tower Colliery and the Zip World site, spanning over 1.5 kilometres in total.



Saturday 1st October

Zip World Slate Caverns
Blaenau Ffestiniog
LL41 3NB

Registration: £25

Fundraising Target: £100

Twisting and turning throughout Llechwedd slate quarry, you’ll travel up to an impressive height of 1,400 ft on the area’s incredible manmade mountains, while taking in the sights of the authentic, industrial landscape.
After exploring the area dotted with quarry mills and cutting sheds, you’ll kit up - ready for your double zip line descent.
Traveling over one kilometre with stunning views of the quarry below and Blaenau Ffestiniog with Snowdonia beyond, you’ll speed back down to earth in a seated position – all the better for enjoying those panoramic vistas.

Why we need you

Each year, over 55,000 people in the UK are diagnosed with breast cancer.

We started with funding the search for better treatments. Today, thanks to amazing people like you, that work includes so much more: treatment, care and support to thousands of people every year, when and where it is needed.

By supporting us this Breast Cancer Awareness Month, you’ll be helping to support cancer patients and their loved ones in Wales and beyond. We know that a cancer diagnosis can be scary, which is why our free Support Line is available for anyone affected by cancer.
