OTHER WAYS TO PARTICIPATE

Not quite ready to leave the ground? You can still join in on the action, here’s how:

Show your support for one of the courageous “edgers” by sponsoring a rappeller.

Create teams among coworkers, family, or friends to compete for the chance to rappel. With the added competition, you’ll make this event even more exciting.

Ready to Toss Your Boss Over the Edge? Partner with co-workers to raise at least $2,500, and we’ll arrange to have your boss locked into a harness. But, if your boss matches your gift, he or she can assign the job to someone else — just like a day at the office!
