THE WOODLANDS, TX -- Camp For All, a local nonprofit barrier-free camp experience that transforms the world for nearly 9,000 children and adults with challenging illnesses or special needs, will host its annual Over The Edge fundraiser and rappelling event in The Woodlands, Texas. The annual event will take place on Saturday, April 20, 2024, with fundraisers rappelling over the edge of 9950 Woodloch Forest Tower, a 31-story office building—one of two Class AAA premier buildings, part of The Woodlands® Towers at The Waterway— thanks to Howard Hughes Holdings Inc. (NYSE: HHH).

Barrier-Free Camp Brings Rappelling Experience to Woodlands Office Tower

Camp For All aims to raise $180,000 through this annual fundraising event. For the past two years, the organization has successfully beat its fundraising goal thanks to generous donors and individual rappellers who commit to raising a minimum of $1,500 to secure their spot. Family and friends of rappellers are encouraged to attend throughout the day and cheer on the daring supporters who choose to scale the building.

With first rappellers gearing up as early as 8 a.m., their journey down will begin on the rooftop and end on the spacious 11th-floor rooftop terrace, for a 20-story descent. This year’s Over The Edge will be even more accessible, with rappellers having the option to take part in a virtual reality (VR) rappelling experience in lieu of the traditional rappel. Camp For All is able to accommodate up to 70 participants as long as they meet the fundraising requirements. The virtual experience will make our participants feel like they are rappelling down the side of the building while never leaving the ground. Camp For All looks forward to making this event barrier free and available to anyone who is ready for an adventure.

“We are so excited to welcome our beloved Over The Edge event and, of course, our brave and generous rappellers back this year,” said Pat Prior Sorrells, Camp For All President and CEO. “Our Camp family has taken our ‘challenge by choice’ mantra very seriously including Howard Hughes who once again chose to support our mission.”

Howard Hughes, a fifth-time partner with Camp For All, is generously hosting the Over The Edge event at The Woodlands Towers at The Waterway.

“Howard Hughes is honored to once again partner with and host Camp For All’s annual fundraiser,” said Philip Gallegos, Vice President, Capital Markets for Howard Hughes and member of the Camp For All Board of Directors. “The impact this local nonprofit has made on the lives of children and adults with special needs or challenging illnesses is truly remarkable. No matter the circumstance, everyone deserves the opportunity to experience the thrill and joy that comes with camping in nature alongside your peers with no fear of any barriers.”
