Abseiling not your thing? You can help by giving to a fundraiser or making a donation to Make-A-Wish
Make-A-Wish creates life changing wishes for kiwi children battling critical illnesses.

Research shows that children who have wishes granted can build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight a critical illness.

When a wish comes true, it creates strength, hope and transformation for a child.

Money raised during Over the Edge for Wishes will go towards granting more wishes.
