the big rappel
the boldest fundraiser in our history
On Monday 12 September 2022 a fearless few will make the first ever rope descent of the world’s most famous skyscraper - The Empire State Building. This challenge has never been attempted before and may never be attempted again.
Outward Bound is proud to partner with Empire State Realty Trust to make this possible. Our goal is simple: to raise transformational funds in support of Outward Bound experiences around the globe and remind the world of what can be achieved when determined people come together.
One of the greatest feats of engineering, the Empire State Building stands as an architectural wonder – and as a potent symbol of what can be accomplished when people work together to overcome adversity and achieve the impossible.
2021 marks the Empire State Building’s 90th Anniversary and Outward Bound’s 80th. Today, we are propelled by our histories but are focused on the future. And we both represent what can happen when challenge and doubt are met with resilience, imagination, and belief.
Together, we are inviting a group of pioneering role models to undertake the first ever rappel of the world’s most famous building – the Empire State Building – in a feat never attempted before now.
Are you ready to make history?
Join us to inspire the next generation to reach beyond their comfort zones and achieve more than they ever thought possible.
In today's world, this mission is more relevant than ever.
Be one of the bold and inspire a generation.
