The Make-A-Wish Over the Edge event was held this past Saturday and Sunday at the W Austin Hotel. Seven Statesman Media team members rappelled down 38 stories to meet cheering family, friends and colleagues. Katie Smith, Steve Collins, Perla Adame, Gabby Munoz, Eric Webb and David Kennedy rappelled on Saturday and Cameron Biehle on Sunday. The Statesman Media team raised $12,647 for Over the Edge and was the fifth highest fundraising team. Make-A-Wish raises money to help grant wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions.
Enjoy this short video of Katie’s daughter Charlotte as she recognized her mom coming down the side of the W Hotel. Katie’s husband Jordan filmed this video and Charlotte is being held by her grandmother. Watch the video HERE. Steve Collins also shot a video as he rappelled down the W. Check that on out here too!
