Default Make a Wish Ontario Rappeling Events looking for Volunteers In Toronto and Ottawa!!

Hello Every one!

My name is Devon McDonald and Iím writing you on behalf of Over The Edge Canada. On June 5th and 6th in Ottawa and June 11th and 12th in Toronto, Ontario, we will be working in partnership with Make-A-Wish to put on our Rope for Hope event and were looking for Rope Volunteers. *If you live in the Ottawa or Toronto area, these are two very unique events you could be a big part of!

Make-A-Wish has been working hard all this year to fundraise money to help children dealing with life-threatening medical conditions. Each participant for the Rope for Hope will be raising at least $1500 or more to get the chance to rappel down 15 stories in Ottawa and 30 stories down the side of the Toronto City Hall!!! Most of these participants have never had the chance to rappel before and this is a once in a life time experience for them.

We are looking for volunteers to help us put this event on in June. These awesome volunteers will ideally have some background and comfort level working with rope, donít mind helping us out for two days, and to help around 150 people to experience this fantastic once in a life time experience. *In exchange for their time, ropes volunteers will be given the chance to experience the extreme rappel for themselves! Lunch will be provided on event days (June 5th and 12th) and volunteers will be given sweet event swag! Not to mention they will be integral to helping us make the difference for children in need in the community.*

This is a perfect way to build up your resume if your applying for a firefighting job and an excellent opportunity to volunteer with a great charity event. Or perhaps your a climber or firefighter looking to give back to the community this is for you!

Ropes Volunteers will be trained on location starting after lunch on June 5th for Ottawa and June 11th for Toronto. This includes handing out equipment, helping participants to negotiate through training and on to the roof, as well as getting them set up to rappel down the building. With so many participants, we really need the help of our ropes volunteers. All critical elements of the event will be overseen by Over the Edge Staff who are qualified Rope Access Technicians.*

If you have any questions please feel free to post them here or contact me directly at Devonmcdonald@me.com

We are very excited about these events, but we need great people like you to help us ensure its a success!*

Thank you for your time.*
