If the best testimonial really gives a feel for what it’s like to participate, check out the 2021 broadcast of Hank’s Take, in which Fox29 reporter Hank Flynn gives a first-person view of the rappelling experience. The video includes interviews with fellow rappelers and Philly notables Michael Solomonov and Jennifer Carroll, as well as a chat with POBS Executive Director Meg Wise who explains why Building Adventure is such an appropriate fundraiser for the Philadelphia Outward Bound School.
"As a first-time rappeler, I was blown away by the amount of excitement that filled the day.
From people scaling the building, to spectators cheering, and music filling the streets – there was just an overwhelming sense of energy and enthusiasm that came to life in Center City.” –Megan G

“It’s fun, it’s amazing, it’s a great adventure. And it’s for a great cause!”- Jordan N


“I rappelled for two reasons: to confront my fear of heights head-on, and to
support the Philadelphia Outward Bound School. The experience challenged me
and changed me, just as students are changed through Outward Bound.”– Loren B

“I can’t wait till next time - I’m totally doing this again!” - Danya H
