It’s not sky diving, but close enough. Join LUNGevity for a unique and exciting fundraising event. It’s not often you get to hang off an 11 story building in the Nation’s Capital making this event a once in a lifetime opportunity. Participants will be strapped to a harness as they rapel from the roof Woodward and Lothrop Building. No experience is required! Photographers will be present to capture photos that you can take home to your friends and family.
LUNGevity is a non-profit organization with a mission to fund research and provide support for lung cancer patients. They have partnered with Over the Edge, an organization that hosts rapelling fundraiser’s, to create this opportunity in Downtown D.C. Your participation will raise awareness and funds to conduct lung cancer research.
