Event Day Details
Check-in: You must arrive 1 hour before your rappel time. Please register, a volunteer will greet you in the lobby of The Offices at 3000 Riverchase (formerly Galleria Tower). You will sign a participant waiver at that time.
Clothes: Wear comfortable and "movable" clothes and sneakers. We will be giving you an event T-shirt. We will collect any "droppables" and keep them until you complete your rappel. Do leave any valuables with friends/family if possible. You may wear a costume, and our equipment experts will help with any modifications to ensure your safety. If you plan to wear glasses or sunglasses during your rappel, please make sure that you have a croakie/eyewear retainer so you do not lose them during your descent.
Safety: Following check-in, you will be briefed and geared up by our experts from Over the Edge USA, and you will then have the opportunity to train using the equipment. After the training rappel, it will be your turn to go “Over the Edge”. Please be assured that Over the Edge USA has taken every safety precaution there is.
Media/Photos: We expect this event to generate a lot of media exposure so you may see some reporters and cameras. We will give you a 4x6 photo as a gift from The Tanner Foundation. Your photo will be available within an hour or so at the registration desk after your rappel. Also, other photos will be available for purchase at the photographers website- https://www.alecphillipsphotography.com/
*** The helmet you will wear is equipped to attach a Go Pro if you would like to bring one to use during your rappel!
Guests: You may bring guests to watch. All guests will view your rappel from the front of the building near the lobby entrance. Please leave any valuables you may have with your guest(s).
*** Parking will be available in an adjacent parking deck - the ramp for parking is marked "The Offices at 3000 Riverchase"
