Austin Over the Edge

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 150 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. 

Space is limited, so act now! 

Raise $1500 and get invited to the VIP Drop Party! Come celebrate how hard you've worked to get a spot at the top.  Catering provided by Torchy's Tacos- with their taco truck onsite and local spirits provided by Rebecca Creek Distillery and Waterloo Sparkling Water. 



Safety is our top priority.  We have reduced the overall footprint of this event and it will look differently than year's past.  We will strictly adhere to all mandated federal, state, local and building regulations to ensure the safety of all participants.
