How do I help?

If you aren’t interested in rappelling but would like to help, you can!

One way to aid Rappelling to End Homelessness is by being a rope volunteer. Ten to 12 rope volunteers are needed on Feb. 2nd, Rappel day. See below for training and attendance requirements.

Friday, Feb. 1, 2019
Rope Volunteer Training & Rappels 3 – 6 p.m.

  • Rope volunteer training is mandatory for all first-time Over The Edge rope volunteers.
  • Rope volunteers are provided an opportunity to rappel during this time, if weather and time permits.

** We do require 2-3 rope volunteers to assist with Media/VIP rappels from 12:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. before the rope volunteer training. Please plan for this in your scheduling.

Saturday, February 2, 2019
Event Day: 7:15-3PM

These volunteers ensure the safety of rappellers.
