The MACC Fund will kick off Childhood Cancer Awareness Month 2021 by going Over the EDGE! Safety is, of course, everyone’s top priority. All OTE events have highly trained industrial rope specialists, all of which are IRATA or SPRAT certified. Every OTE site is set up as an industrial work site, with compliance to all OSHA laws and SPRAT governing procedures. Each event site has a comprehensive Site Inspection & Safety Plan completed, and if every potential risk cannot be mitigated, the site will not be deemed suitable for use. On 11/15/19, the Wintrust Building at 731 N. Jackson has passed all safety inspections. To date, there have been over 55,000 unique rappellers who have participated in OTE events and there has been one hospitalization for an allergic reaction to a bee sting!
There is no charge to participate in the event, however, there is a minimum $1,500 peer-to-peer fundraising expectation, with a GOAL of $3,000 per rappeller. Each individual participating will receive their own unique fundraising link highlighting their participation in the event, which can be distributed via email, social media, text, and so on. Your fundraising efforts will make a direct, significant impact in the world of childhood cancer and blood disorders research.
