Hello! My name is Presley Jones. I am a 4th year at the University of Texas at Austin and a member of the Longhorn Marching Band. I am raising funds and awareness for Make-A-Wish® Central & South Texas by (hopefully) joining 150 people on  October 29, 2022, to go Over The Edge - literally!  Over The Edge challenges you to face your fears, catch your breath, step up to the edge and rappel from a downtown skyrise in the heart of Austin. The first 150 fundraisers to raise a minimum of $1,500 will earn a spot to go Over The Edge!!

Now, something to know about me, one of my biggest fears is heights! However, I decided to do this because I am inspired by the courage and bravery of these kids and their families. I want to challenge myself to be half as courageous as these individuals and support them as much as I can.

More than 500 children in central and south Texas are diagnosed each year with a critical medical condition. Last year, Make-A-Wish® Central & South Texas granted 309 wishes for local children. Research shows that a wish can give a child the mental and physical strength needed to fight their illness. You can help Make-A-Wish® reach more of these children and create hope, strength and joy in their lives. All the money raised by me and fellow rappellers will go towards granting these wishes.

I hope you can help me reach my goal and help make a difference in the lives of children who need it most!
