The EDGE Wrest Point abseil is one of Hobart’s most iconic fundraising events, and one of the most successful events on the RHH Research Foundation’s fundraising calendar. Now celebrating its 10th-anniversary milestone, the event is back again to attract 60 more passionate Tasmanians to ‘Do it for Dad’ and help raise funds to support local medical research.

On Sunday 4 September 2022, supported by outdoor adventure experts, Aardvarks Adventures, 60 local participants will conquer their fear of heights and scale the 70-metre incline of the Wrest Point main tower to raise funds to support local medical research right here in Tasmania.

As an exciting initiative more recently held on Father’s Day, all 60 participants will experience ‘the EDGE’ and raise funds, with several doing so in honour of a dad who has been a pivotal part of their lives, or by being an incredible dad themselves. Throughout the history of this event, the Foundation has welcomed a mix of amazing ambassadors from the arts, sports, medical and other not-for-profit sectors as they challenge themselves to scale the heights of Tasmania’s tallest building.

This year the Foundation is delighted to gain support from another local icon, the Tasmania JackJumpers basketball team which has enjoyed a stellar season in its first year in the NBL. And they’re delighted to announce that Jack the Jumper will step up as the EDGE Ambassador for 2022.
