Muscle charity seeks supporters with a head for heights

Calling all thrill seekers – now is your chance to get your adrenalin pumping and raise some money to help in the fight against muscle-wasting diseases at the same time

The Muscular Dystrophy Campaign is recruiting brave people to abseil from the top of the Europa Hotel, Belfast on 25 September. After being kitted out and trained up by the experienced instructors participants have time to take in the breathtaking view from the top of one of Northern Ireland’s tallest and most iconic buildings before stepping over the edge for a gentle descent back down to earth.

There are 2,000 children and adults who have muscle-wasting conditions in Northern Ireland. All money raised will go to the fight against these devastating conditions. For further details please contact Glenn at 028 9075 1497 or email

The Muscular Dystrophy Campaign is the leading UK charity focusing on muscle-wasting disease. It has pioneered the search for treatments and cures for more than 50 years, and is dedicated to improving the lives of all children and adults affected by muscle disease.

We fund world-class research to find effective treatments and cures; provide practical information, advice and emotional support for individuals, their families and carers; campaign to raise awareness and bring about change; award grants towards the cost of specialist equipment; and provide specialist education and development for health professionals.
