A cancer support charity is calling on adrenaline lovers as it launches Scotland’s most terrifying fundraising event.
CLAN Cancer Support has announced this year’s Brave the Bounce bungee jump which will feature Scotland’s first 300 ft drop – twice as deep as last year’s popular event. Courageous participants will be rewarded with a birds-eye view of Aberdeen, as they prepare to leap off a platform and drop an eye-watering 300 feet to the ground. A drone view of the height of the drop has been filmed by a drone and can be viewed here.
The CLAN Brave the Bounce bungee jump will take place on Saturday, June 29, 2019 from 9am – 7pm, at Aberdeen Beach Boulevard.
People from 14 – 114 are invited to experience the closest thing to human flight, to raise money for CLAN, which provides cancer support to people across the North-east who are affected by cancer.
Online registration for the Brave the Bounce 2019 is now open at www.clanhouse.org. There is a £40 registration fee, and participants are asked to set themselves a £80 sponsorship target.
Ruth McIntosh, CLAN fundraising co-ordinator, said: “We are excited to bring Scotland’s highest bungee to Aberdeen in June. Last year’s event was extremely popular, and many of those who jumped the 160ft drop have already signed up to challenge themselves to 300ft.
“We are always overwhelmed by the support CLAN receives from businesses and individuals across Aberdeen city and shire, and we are confident this new venture will excite daredevils from across the region. It is the first time such an exhilarating event has taken place in Aberdeen, and the views from the jumping platform at the top, looking out to the North Sea and city will be unmissable.”
CLAN Cancer Support is an independent charity which provides comfort, support and information, free of charge, for anyone, of any age, affected by any type of cancer. CLAN aims to support people to reduce anxiety, stress and to increase their ability to cope with the effects of a serious illness.
