 Rappel For Rippleffect 2017!

We know there are thousands of charitable events out there so Rippleffect is offering a unique fundraising experience that stands high above the rest.  In fact, it stands, 173 feet above the rest!  On May 12th and 13th, nearly 100 intrepid adventurers will go Over The Edge by rappelling 13 stories down the side of one of Portland’s tallest buildings: One City Center.


The Rappel For Rippleffect Over The Edge event is an opportunity for participants to push their limits and engage in something they will never forget.  With the spirit of adventure and the exploration of personal boundaries at the heart of the Rippleffect Experience, what could be a more fitting fundraiser than taking in the 360 degree view of Maine and Casco Bay as you take that big step Over The Edge!


Be A Rippleffect Rappeller!

Rippleffect Rappellers will earn their ticket to go Over The Edge by raising  pledges on a personalized online fundraising page.  As this event is limited to just 100 rappelers, we expect available rappelling tickets to be claimed quickly!  Early and Open Registration will begin in January–Stay tuned in for specific dates for registration!

There are several ways that you can be involved with Rappel For Rippleffect:

  • Individuals: To go Over the Edge, participants must raise a minimum of $1000. The majority of fundraising is done online through our donation portal.
  • Teams:  For every $1000 raised, someone gets to rappel. So if you or your company raise $3000, three people will get to rappel!
  • Toss The Boss: Businesses and organizations can participate and be recognized as a “Rippleffect Toss The Boss” supporter by raising a minimum of $1500 to have a (willing) employer/supervisor go Over The Edge.  Rally your co-workers to make it a company wide effort to raise funds or Rippleffect and see your boss take that big step over the side of One City Center!  Companies that participate in Toss The Boss will receive event day recognition.
