Glen Turner from London will be abseiling 80 metres (262 feet) down the ArcelorMittal Orbit Tower in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. He has never done an abseil before and he is very excited to:
Dangle off the UK’s tallest sculpture! The 20 mile views across London will be incredible though, so it’ll be worth fighting any nerves for!
Glen will be taking on the challenge in partnership with the Nystagmus Network and Moorfields Eye Charity, to raise money for pioneering nystagmus research at Moorfields Eye Hospital and the University College London Institute of Ophthalmology.
We are lucky enough to have Glen explain his involvement in a video which he posted on his own personal blog. Please watch and listen to the video below:
