About Event

Make-A-Wish ® Central & South Texas creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. These kids show us daily, the courage needed to face extraordinary circumstances. Now they challenge you to face your fears, catch your breath, step up to the edge and rappel from one of the tallest high-rise buildings in downtown Austin. Each year, more than 550 children in central and south Texas are diagnosed with a critical illness. We are on a quest to bring every eligible child's wish to life, and with your help, we can. The first 200 individuals to raise a minimum of $1,500 will earn a spot to go Over The Edge for Make-A-Wish®.

All money raised by Make-A-Wish ® rappellers goes to granting the wishes of children with critical illnesses. Note: Participants must raise the minimum $1,500 to participate in this thrilling opportunity.


In these challenging times, we are all navigating through uncertainty for ourselves, our loved ones and our communities. In light of current medical and public concerns, we are taking urgent and deliberate steps to ensure the health and safety of all wish kids, their families, as well as our partners and supporters like you. In response to COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to postpone rappelling until June 2021. We are still moving forward with hosting a virtual celebration of “Taking Wishes to New Heights” on Thursday, September 17th at 7PM formerly known as the Drop Party.



As our some of our key supporters we hope you will continue to help us grant wishes by reaching the minimum goal of $1500 to rappel with us next year! We are extending the deadline to reach this goal to Monday, September 21st, 2020 at 5:00pm.
