Hi Everyone.

We are looking for a handful of volunteers in Calgary to help with a good cause. The Make a Wish Foundation is holding their annual Rope for Hope campaign to help children with life threatening medical conditions achieve their lifelong wish. We need belayers to help belay supporters rappel down a 15 story building.

Here are the details from their flyer....

I’m excited to tell you about the upcoming 2015 Make-A-Wish® Rope for Hope presented by Canadian Western Bank. Rope for Hope is a unique challenge event that calls on participants to raise a minimum of $1,500 to support granting the wishes of children living with life-threatening medical conditions, in exchange for an exclusive opportunity to rappel 15 storeys down the side of the Barclay Centre in downtown Calgary. Rope for Hope will take place on July 9, 2015 where over 70 people will be brave in support of our amazing wish children who battle life-threatening medical conditions every day. Your participation will change the lives of these children and their families!
Your support will help us to make wishes like Harlo’s come true. This year our goal is to grant 42 wishes to very special kids across Southern Alberta and we would really love to have you participate in 2015Rope for Hope !

Rappel spots are filling up fast and we expect another sold out event so don’t miss your chance to help make wishes come true. This year we have a special incentive prize of two vouchers for anywhere WestJet flies If you register by May 31, 2015 and raise $2,500 by June 30, 2015. Visit to secure your spot!
Please feel free to extend this invitation to your friends, family and colleagues who are interested in participating. I hope to see you on event day in July!

If you have any questions about the event, please don’t hesitate to reply, or contact April Cote, Manager, Events & Volunteers at Make-A-Wish® Southern Alberta at 403 228 3666 Ext. 302 or for more information.
