Ever wondered what it would feel like to rappel down the side of a multi-story building? In early 2021, you can do just that while raising money to support Give Kids the World Village!
Over the Edge will return on Feb. 12, 2021, as participants will rappel down the side of the 32-story Hyatt Regency Orlando. Those interested can either fundraise once registered or simply make a donation.
The registration fee to be a rappeller is $50, and participants must raise a minimum of $1,000 by Feb. 10, 2021. By registering, you agree to raise the $1,000 and rappel. The non-refundable registration fee is counted toward the fundraising minimum.
There’s no minimum age to rappel, but minors will have to have their waiver signed by a consenting parent or guardian. There is a weight restriction, however; participants must b between 110-350 pounds to fit into the harness equipment safely.
For those a bit nervous about going Over the Edge, there will be a training and practice session before the big day! This session will help rappellers get used to the harness, rappel device and technique.
As for COVID-19 precautions, Over the Edge has developed a detailed plan on the event’s safe execution should group gathering and social distancing restrictions remain in place at that time. Participants will be given more details closer to the actual event date.
