Check-in: Please arrive 1 hour before your rappel time. You will register in the lobby of the building Brookhollow Central II(2900 N Loop West, Houston, 77092), where a volunteer will greet you. At check-in you can provide any additional donations you need to meet the $1000 minimum ($800 if you are on a team).
Clothes: Wear comfortable and "movable" clothes and sneakers. We will be giving you an event T-shirt. 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 “Descend for Diabetes”. 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. If you would like to have a personal memento of the event, there will be professional photographers on site. You will receive a card at the event with information about how to purchase your photos.
Guests: You may bring guests to watch.
