Camp For All Partners with Howard Hughes for Over The Edge 2022 Event
HOUSTON, TX – Camp For All is a local not-for-profit that transforms the world for children and adults with challenging illnesses or special needs. Partnering with more than 65 other not-for-profit organizations, Camp For All delivers a barrier-free camp experience for approximately 10,000 campers each year. The organization will host its 2022 Over The Edge fundraiser and rappelling event in The Woodlands, Texas.
The annual event will take place on Saturday, April 23, 2022, 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 The Howard Hughes Corporation®. Camp For All aims to raise $150,000 through this annual fundraising event.
This event will help support the campers that Camp For All serves each year at its 206-acre, barrier-free facility in Washington County. Currently, the event has space for up to 70 rappellers, and those planning to rappel must raise $1,500 to secure their spot. The family-friendly event will last all day, with the first rappellers gearing up as early as 8 a.m. CDT. Participants will rappel from the rooftop of 9950 Woodloch Forest Tower down to the spacious 11th-floor rooftop terrace, for a 20-story descent. Friends, family and community members will be able to cheer on participants from the terrace and greet them upon landing.
“We’re so thrilled to bring the Camp For All Goes Over The Edge event to The Woodlands community once again. While the past two years have been challenging for everyone, our Camp community is excited to continue to support our mission of providing life-changing, barrier-free experiences for our incredible campers,” says Camp For All President and CEO, Pat Prior Sorrells. “Thank you to the wonderful Howard Hughes team for their continued generosity and support. This event wouldn’t be possible without them.”
The Howard Hughes Corporation, a third-time partner with Camp For All, is generously hosting the Over The Edge event at The Woodlands® Towers at The Waterway.
“We are proud to partner with Camp For All and provide thousands of campers the opportunity to enjoy a barrier-free camp experience. We are excited to join our friends at Camp For All and support this worthwhile cause,” said Jim Carman, President of the Houston Region for The Howard Hughes Corporation.
