Rappelling to End Homelessness
On Saturday, February 2, The Lord’s Place and 65 people made a fantastic journey
down the nine story Comeau Building for Rappelling to End Homelessness.
To everyone who fund-raised, rappelled, shared on social media,
posted flyers, and came to watch our first ever Rappelling event, we are so grateful!
We were able to raise more than $52,000 through this event,
while enjoying an incredible experience,
all to break the cycle of homelessness here in Palm Beach County.
Your Journey DOWN is Their Journey UP!
Your journey DOWN is their journey UP
RAPPELLING to End Homelessness dares to bring awareness to the nearly 3,000 people who are experiencing homelessness here in Palm Beach County. Staffed by the experienced and professional team at Over the Edge (overtheedgeglobal.com), this event will be sure to bring a new daring crowd, and bring The Lord’s Place name and mission to new heights! On February 2, join us at the Comeau Building in downtown West Palm Beach. Two rappelling stations will be set up throughout the day, during which there will be regular downtown foot-traffic and the well-attended Greenmarket. Join us as a sponsor, dare to rappel yourself, or challenge your ”Fearless Leader”, where a group can fundraise to challenge their leader to rappel themselves! Whatever your interest, there is an opportunity for everyone to be involved!
Who Can Rappel to End Homelessness?
It is free to attend the event and watch. However, if you would like to rappel, there is a $25 registration fee and an overall fundraising minimum of $500. We do encourage you to raise more than the minimum, and will have great incentives to help you along the way. We ask you to raise at least $500, as this is what it is going to take to help each of our clients end their cycle of homelessness in Palm Beach County! Participants must weigh between 100 and 300 pounds. You must be at least 18 years old to rappel.
