Experience the stunning rooftop views of London before abseiling down the side of the QEQM building and celebrating this enormous achievement as your feet hit the ground. The abseil is open to everyone (18 years and over). No previous experience is necessary as you will receive training on the day.

Registration costs £30 and we ask that you raise a minimum of £70 in sponsorship. The COSMIC team will be there every step of the way to help you with your fundraising, providing ideas and guidance to help make this a fulfilling achievement, both in terms of challenge and fundraising level. 

Sign up today to be a part of this great adventure.
