Do I need rappelling experience to participate?  Not at all!

How old do I have to be? Anyone can participate.  The only age restriction is that under the age of 18 requires a parent or guardian signature on the legal waiver form.

Is there a weight requirement?  Equipment safety standards require that people must be between 100 and 300 lbs. in order to safely rappel.

How many stories will I be rappelling?  The SMILE! Building is 5 stories. The summit has spectacular views of downtown Concord!

How much do I need to raise? Each participant, fondly known as an ‘Edger’ needs to raise $1,000.  But do not fear!  We have lots of fundraising ideas to help you reach the summit!

Can I form a team? Yes! Teams of four (4) are encouraged and as a team, you only need to raise $3,000 for all 4 to rappel!

I don’t want to rappel – can I still donate? Absolutely! You can show how much you care by donating to the event.
