This is Arthur Page coming to you live from One City Center in Portland Maine for the Ripple Effect rappelling event!
Ripple Effect raises money for youth empowerment through outdoor adventure through rappelling events. The way it works, you raise a bunch of money for them ($1k) and they drop you off the side of a building. It is a great deal for everyone!
The weather has not been cooperating but spirits are still high and there are a lot of cheering bystanders cheering on participants as they maneuver down the 180 foot wall of One City Center. More to come but for now, enjoy these great photos!
Update 05/24/14: The video is finished and attached to this post so you can experience rappelling down the side of a building in first person! Special thanks to Chris Lavoie of Keller Williams realty in Portland Maine for helping to raise the funds for this great cause and for getting the great footage!
