Upward Enterprises Volunteers at the National Kidney Foundations Over the Edge event.
Its always nice when we can use our experience in the ropes course industry to help with a charitable cause. We were contacted by the National Kidney Foundation who ask if we could help with their ‘Over the Edge’ event on June 18th. The Over the Edge event, held at the Canton Crossing Tower in Baltimore, Maryland offered participants the opportunity to rappell down a 200ft (17 story) building to raise money for the foundation to fight kidney disease.
Clive, Larry, Sean and John went to Baltimore on Friday the 17th to take part in the pre-training with the Over the Edge staff and to be shown the ropes! They all got to rappel down the building during the training, which was an added bonus that they all enjoyed. During the training day, the event had a few VIP’s come along and rappel down the building too.
Clive’s wife Liz also took part in the event and raised $1100 before she went over the edge in memory of her Father who passed away from kidney failure in 2005.
