For the fourth and I think final time, I will be going Over the Edge and rappelling from the top of The W hotel in Austin to raise money for Make-A-Wish.  While it has taken me three years and three rappels to put my fear of heights behind me, the purpose behind the rappel is squarely and clearly in front of me.  I continue to marvel at the great work Make-A-Wish does and my heart is touched as I see the impact a granted wish has on the child and their family.  There is nothing more gratifying and fulfilling than seeing the smile on a kids face or the tears in a parents eye as they talk about their Wish Experience.  The hug and thank you could keep me going for a lifetime.     

Over The Edge challenges you to face your fears, catch your breath, step up to the edge and rappel 38 stories (478ft) down the side of The W Austin in the heart of downtown.  

The first 244 individuals who raise the minimum of $2,000 get the “privilege” of rappelling off the top of The W.  It’s crazy, nerve racking, exhilarating and the best view in Austin.  You can help Make-A-Wish® reach each deserving child and create hope, strength and joy in their lives. Money raised by those rappelling goes towards granting these wishes, but the reality is that well over 300 children in Central and South Texas are eligble.  This is where I need your help….as always….again!

This year I am part of a team that includes my own kids and the kids of some of my dearest “EN – Empty Nester” friends.  Please help me both secure my spot among the 244, but also to reach my Personal Goal of $16,500 (enough to grant 3 wishes).

I hope you can help me make a difference in the lives of children who need it most!

See you at the BOTTOM.
