Thank you for visiting my Rappel For Rippleffect page! 

Two years ago I had the thrill of rappelling with Rippleffect. What a fun way to fundraise! This year, instead of going "over the edge" myself, I want to sponsor a student who otherwise might not get the chance to experience the thrill, and trust, and boost in confidence that is ignited by rappelling down a 10-story building.  Please consider donating to this worthy cause so that we can all “go over the edge” and make it possible for more high need students to benefit from Rippleffect's outstanding leadership and adventure programs.

For over 19 years, Rippleffect has been a community-based organization that has provided experiential education and wilderness adventures for youth.  While many of their programs are based out of their Cow Island eco-home in Casco Bay, Rippleffect works youth organizations and schools in locations all over Maine.  In 2017, Rippleffect had over 3,000 young people involved in leadership programs, winter expeditions, after school programs, environmental education, sea kayak expeditions, and more!

The Rippleffect mission of promoting youth development and leadership through adventure, healthy communities and living sustainably, resonates deeply with me and I ask you to help support my efforts to positively impact the lives of Maine youth!

Proceeds from the pledges that I raise for Rappel For Rippleffect will go toward:

  • Providing more than $40,000 in scholarship opportunities for Maine youth annually
  • Supporting our community-based programs for schools and youth non-profits
  • Providing year-round programs that build confidence, develop critical leadership skills, strengthen relationships, and grow participant's appreciation for the outdoors through the exploration of Cow Island, the waters of Casco Bay, and the wilderness of New England
