When dedicated people get behind a cause, great things can happen. That's why we need you. Sign up as an individual or create a team of your own! Then share your support for those with disabilities with your friends on social media and email. It's easy and funds will go directly to support Edge for Easterseals Western and Central Pennsylvania. The majority of participants are first-time rappelers: they’re people young and old from all walks of life, who are pushing themselves out of their comfort zone for a cause they care deeply about. Participants with a wide variety of special needs are able to rappel, too. Together, with a few good people like you, we can make great things happen for the cause we all believe in. You got this!
