Pasadena, CA 91101
On March 12, join us for a thrilling event to help raise awareness and funds for Shatterproof, a groundbreaking new organization committed to ending the suffering of our loved ones and protecting our children from addiction's grip.
Under careful supervision by experts from Over the Edge, participants will rappel from one of Pasadena's tallest buildings, The Westin Pasadena. This unique fundraiser isn't for the faint of heart.
March 12 was a transformative day for Shatterproof and the movement that has started across our country. That day in Pasadena, we held our inaugural Shatterproof Challenge, with results beyond our wildest dreams. We are overwhelmed by the response to this first event and enthusiastic about the remaining 17 events across the U.S. in 2014.
Here are some highlights about the 2014 Pasadena Shatterproof Challenge:
- 102 people rappelled down the Westin-Pasadena with a supportive crowd cheering from the ground.
- $240,000 was raised to help prevent and treat addiction.
- Numerous companies sponsored and supported the event.
