Vikki and Tom – our first abseilers

Vikki and her husband, Tom, were the very first to sign up to abseil down from the 262 feet high viewing platform at the ArcelorMittal Orbit at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Vikki’s family have been members and supporters of the Nystagmus Network for many years. Parents, Peter and Lynne, even organised an entire Open Day one year.

Every penny the couple raise will go directly into nystagmus research at Moorfields Eye Hospital and University College, London.

You can sponsor Vikki and Tom here.

Want to abseil at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park?

Could you take the plunge and abseil down from the 262 feet high viewing platform at the ArcelorMittal Orbit at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park? It’s an exhilarating descent to the ground, with a breathtaking 20 mile vista across London, including iconic buildings such as the Gherkin, St Paul’s Cathedral, Canary Wharf and Wembley Stadium, as well as the world famous sporting venues at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

It surely is a once in a lifetime challenge!

The Nystagmus Network is partnering with Moorfields Eye Charity to raise money for nystagmus research at Moorfields Eye Hospital, where Mr Vijay Talyor is currently investigating congenital nystagmus and visual crowding, and its research the partner, the University College London (UCL) Institute of Ophthalmology where Dr Parashkev Nachev is pioneering the use of magnetic implants to control the rapid eye movements associated with acquired nystagmus.
