Dare to Change Lives!

Event registration is now closed. Would you like to personally donate $1,000 so that you can join the rappel this year? Call Lannia at 608-828-8860 to see if we can accommodate an additional rappeller.

All event proceeds stay local to ensure that no one in our community has to face cancer alone. Presented by Exact Sciences and WKOW 27.


  • Nearly anyone can participate! People in their 80s/90s and those with physical disabilities are welcome. Participants must weigh between 100 and 300 lbs for safety.
  • Participants under 18 will need a parent or guardian’s signed release to rappel.
