Hello Friends & Family! Thank you for taking an interest in supporting team "Holliday Wishes" this year! Our team has raised over $40,000 for Make A Wish of Central & South Texas and we're out to grant some more wishes in 2020.
As many of you know, this organization is dear to my heart and I have supported it since 2006. While living in Austin, I have befriended so many people who rely on Make A Wish of Central & South Texas to provide their families hope and their children joy as they go through rough health situations. The Over the Edge event has been a fundraiser I look forward to every year because it challenges each individual to face their fears, and push forward. I love to lead by example and rappelling from the 32nd story of 600 Congress in the heart of downtown Austin, has been my favorite way to cheer on the kids of Make & Wish and encourage them to keep fighting. The first 200 fundraisers to raise a minimum of $1,500 will earn a spot to go Over The Edge this year. I appreciate anything you're able to share but if you are unable to contribute financially, I would love to see your smiling face on June 7th as I rappel down the building again. :)
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. Money raised by rappellers goes towards granting these wishes.
