Dave and I really do love all of the Make-A-Wish events we get to be a part of, but I think, without a doubt, our favourite one each and every year is Rope for Hope. Not only is it just such a neat event raising money and awareness for a fantastic cause, but it is so truly awesome to be able to watch so many people conquer their fear of heights! That may be a surprising sentence, but I am always surprised by how many of the participants are there not only to support the charity, but also to overcome their fear of heights by rappelling down the side of a building. As somehow who semi-recently discovered that they are afraid of heights (thanks to a trip to St. Paul’s Cathedral back in 2008), I definitely applaud all of the participants, by particularly those who conquered their fears to be part of this super fun event!
Every so often we get the pleasure of working with some of the greatest people this city has to offer as we cover Make-A-Wish events and wishes. And we get to spend the day learning about some truly amazing kids too.
I never used to think I was afraid of heights, until I was at the top of St. Paul’s Cathedral in London, attempting to edge around the incredibly small Golden Gallery.
So by now, I think you all know how much we love covering events for Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario. It’s an absolutely wonderful organization that does just truly amazing things for kids with life threatening illnesses (and their families too)! But this event was really one of our favourites so far!
