Abseil down a Melbourne skyscraper in the name of charity
Altitude Shift is giving those with nerves of steel and hearts of gold the opportunity to abseil down an over-20-storey skyscraper in the Melbourne CBD in order to make money for Anglicare Victoria.

The exterior of Melbourne's St James building at 535 Bourke Street will be abseiled down with the assistance of a professional abseil team who will coach the brave participants and help them through the exciting and scary undertaking.

This once in a lifetime experience is made available to 200 registrants, who register as individuals or as a team and raise funds from donations. There is still time to register and enjoy a unique and unbelievable adventure experienced by only a few.

On Friday 28 April and Saturday 29 April 2017 from 8am to 5pm, participants will ascend the iconic St James building before taking the plunge down all 27 floors back to street level.

If your fear of heights rules you out as a registrant, you can still participate by donating to a registrant of your choice on the website here. Together all registrants thus far have raised $35,046 of the $150,000 goal at the time of writing, which was 23 days before the event.

Anglicare Victoria provides care for children and families, aiming to transform the futures of children and young people, families and adults. It supports vulnerable families and promotes social justice; offering assistance with financial issues, substance abuse, legal help and localised support for regional areas of Victoria. In addition, it is Victoria's largest provider of out-of-home care services for disadvantaged Victorians.

Whether you're doing it for the disadvantaged or for the thrill of it, Altitude Shift will be an unbelievable, once in a lifetime experience both you and the families whose lives you transform will never forget.
