Event participants will rappel alongside an amazing group of people including wish kids, wish parents, Make-A-Wish corporate supporters and volunteers. Participants are each required to raise a minimum of $1,500 to take part. Participants can take part in a variety of ways: as individuals, in teams, or as part of a colleague group.
