How does it work?

Individuals: To go Over the Edge, participants must raise a minimum of $500. The majority of fundraising is done online through our donation portal.

Teams/Companies: For every $500 raised, someone gets to rappel. So if you or your company raise $1500, three people will get to rappel!

Is there a registration fee?

Yes, all participants must pay a $25 registration fee to begin the fundraising process. So, essentially the participant must only raise an additional $475 to go Over the Edge since the $25 fee counts towards your fundraising goal.

Who can be a Rippleffect Rappeller?

Anyone! However participants must be between 110-350 pounds to safely fit into the harness equipment and minors must have their waiver signed by a consenting parent or guardian.
