The HK Vertical 1000 is a charity event and we ask all participants to make an initial donation of $50,000 to secure their space and then to work with us to provide help where it is most needed.
ANNOUNCING THE SECOND HK VERTICAL 1000
23 NOVEMBER 2019
Following the success of the first ever Hong Kong high building abseil on 7 December 2017, Hong Kong Outward Bound is delighted to announce that a second fundraising abseil will take place on 23 November 2019 at the iconic One Island East.
The technical coordination and management for the event will be once again be provided by the Scottish Team of 6 highly experienced mountain guides led by the Event Technical Director, Iain Peter.
The event is strictly limited to forty people and we expect the ropes to sell out fast. Because of this, we will require participants to make a substantial financial commitment to secure the rope and then to make significant efforts to raise additional funds through contributions from friends or colleagues.
Money raised from the event will help support young Hong Kong people who would otherwise not have the means or opportunity, to access challenging and adventurous Outward Bound courses. These courses help young people in developing their self-confidence, skills and positive attitudes, which in turn aids future success at school, work and for life.
QUOTES FROM 2017 DESCENDANTS
It was a thrilling and uplifting experience, made more so in knowing that we were raising money for such a good cause. Meeting so many OB alumni participating in the event evidenced OB’s enduring impact.
The technical team was phenomenal… very reassuring and encouraging which made the whole experience a very memorable one!
