Fundraising for Thyroid UK

I want to help raise money for Thyroid UK. What can I do?


 

Mucky Races

Thyroid UK is putting together a team of people who are looking for
the muckiest experience of their lives!

Mucky Races logoMucky Races have obstacle courses that are designed to be challenging but most importantly, they're good fun and suitable for racers of all abilities and ages.

Whichever event you choose to run there'll be plenty of mud, hills, obstacles, water hazards, jumps and hurdles to overcome. Whatever your ability, there is a sense of achievement.

There are several sites across England with various events so you are sure to find a location and event that suits you. For more info on events go to: http://www.muckyraces.co.uk/

Join Us in a WORLD RECORD ATTEMPT!

On 11th June 2016, Skyline, alongside Thyroid UK will be attempting to smash all previous records for skydiving. The aim is to complete the most tandem jumps in England in 24 hours… and we need your help!


skyline parachuting tandem world record attempt

Imagine yourself exiting from the door of an aircraft from over 2 and half miles up and freefalling at a speed of 120mph through the clouds, before gliding back down to your envious supporters on the ground below. Skydiving is an unbelievable and exhilarating rush like no other and with no experience required - it's your opportunity to reach for the skies and be part of a World Record!

For this particular skydive you'll be attached to a fully qualified instructor who controls your jump from start to finish; they will do all the hard work for you, allowing you to catch your breath and enjoy the ride!

Thyroid UK has booked 10 places at Sibson Airfield, Wansford, Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, PE8 6NE

As long as you raise the minimum sponsorship level of £395 for your jump, you can recover both the cost of the booking deposit and the jump from your sponsorship money - which means you get to jump for FREE!

If you would be interested in taking part in this event and helping to raise funds for Thyroid UK please send us an email to: louise.warvill@thyroiduk.org

We also have a website where you can book too. Here you can also book for group members (if any of your friends want to join you in your World Record Attempt skydiving adventure).

Just head over to https://www.skylineregistrations.co.uk/parachuting/booking.aspx?clientid=86064
If you choose this option, please remember to pick Peterborough as your choice of airfield.
