The National Kidney Foundation of Maryland (NKF-MD) will hold its fifth annual Rappel for Kidney Health signature event, June 6 and 7, at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront (700 Aliceanna St.).
Rappel for Kidney Health invites people of all ages to scale down the 32-story building, from the roof to the fifth floor pool deck.
Rappel participants include people with connections to kidney disease, including transplant donors and recipients, as well as adventure seekers, media personalities and other local celebrities.
NKF-MD is providing personal fundraising pages to assist rappel participants in raising the required $1,000 minimum to participate in the event. Once the money is raised, participants will receive an event t-shirt, participate in a training session on event day and a commemorative photo of them in action.
Face painting, a DJ and additional entertainment will be available for family and friends in the landing zone where they can cheer on their loved ones as they rappel and greet them when they reach the pool deck.
For the third year in a row, participants can form teams and be part of a fundraising competition, especially between companies in the same industry. The top five teams, as well as the top five individuals who raise the most money, will be featured on the Rappel for Kidney Health website home page and honored at a thank you reception on June 6.
