Achieved So Far!

Help Us Over The Edge of Our Goal!

Rappel for

Rippleffect is offering a unique fundraising experience that stands high above the rest. In fact, it stands 180 feet above the rest!  Nearly 100 intrepid adventurers will go Over The Edge by rappelling 13 stories down the side of one of Portland's tallest building: One City Center.  With the spirit of adventure and the exploration of personal boundaries at the heart of the Rippleffect Experience, what could be a more fitting fundraiser than taking in a 360 degree view of Maine and Casco Bay as you take that big step Over The Edge!
