Abseil at Old Trafford

The Manchester United Abseil Challenge returns to Old Trafford in March, offering you stunning bird's eye views of the Theatre of Dreams, with Francis House Children’s Hospice and The Christie Hospital set to benefit from a weekend of hair-raising charity fun.

Sign up now to make the thrilling descent from the stadium roof to the side of the pitch at Old Trafford via a 140ft free-fall abseil on Saturday 22 or Sunday 23 March, in order to help make a difference to the lives of young people with life-limiting conditions and terminal illnesses. And don’t worry - a team of fully-qualified experts will be on hand to talk you through your descent!

Your continued support, through fundraising events such as this, has helped The Christie Young Oncology Unit to continue to provide the very best care for the young patients enabling them to lead as normal a life as possible. Meanwhile the partnership with Francis House has helped fund the employment of a team of Home Care nurses to provide an outreach care service.

Anyone can take part in the challenge but there are limited spaces for each day so register early to avoid disappointment!
