About the event

Rope for Hope is a unique challenge event that calls on you to fundraise in exchange for a once-in-a-lifetime experience to rappel down the edge of the tallest sculpture in the UK - the ArcelorMittal Orbit at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. 

You will rappel alongside an amazing group of people including wish parents, Make-A-Wish corporate supporters and volunteers.

From the 262ft top of the Orbit, you will experience incredible views that includes iconic buildings such as St Paul's Cathedral, Big Ben, The Gherkin, The Shard, Canary Wharf and Wembley Stadium and the world-famous sporting venues of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park where the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games took place.

Before stepping over the edge, professional abseil instructors will provide a comprehensive safety briefing and all the specialist equipment required for your challenge.

How we'll support you:

  • A free Make-A-Wish top  
  • Support emails and lots of fundraising tips
  • Digital Fundraising pack, sponsorship forms and all the materials you may require 
  • Dedicated member of the Events Team to help with any queries
