Thank you for taking time to consider supporting my current fundraising campaign for Make-A-Wish® Central & South Texas.
Why do I do love Make A WIsh? My heart goes out to the 500+ children and families in central and south Texas who 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.
What is Over The Edge? It is a fundraising event that physically challenges those who raise money for Make A Wish. For me, it started with a challenge from some of the board members of Make A Wish. The Wish Days I host are not in anyway physical for me, except for my feeble attempts avoiding welling up in tears each time. Besides the tears, I am in my motorsports loving element.
Here's what the Over The Edge day was like for me last year.
I can’t say that I have ever felt I was scared of heights, so when she challenged me to fund raise and participate in the Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas 2021 Over The Edge event, I thought it would be no big deal.
On October 29, 2022, I hope to go Over The Edge! This year, my goal is to not only qualify, but also not get queasy or overly nervous. I will rappel from a higher altitude, using the side of the W Hotel skyrise (32 floors tall) in downtown Austin.
