BallotSenator Hughes Takes a Break from Campaigning to Raise Money for Outward Bound Philadelphia

In an effort to raise funds for Outward Bound Philadelphia, I joined with 70 other participants, rappelling 15 stories from the top of Penn Center Plaza Tower 3 in Center City at 8 a.m. on Friday, November 2.

My fellow participants and I were required to raise or donate $2,000 in support of the organization. By the end of the day, the event had brought in $157,000 with more to come.

It was a great, exhilarating experience for a wonderful cause.

Outward Bound Philadelphia, which I have long supported, provides outdoor experiences for young people, especially inner-city youth, building leadership within communities.

Outward Bound Philadelphia develops the leadership skills of students, educators, school administrators and community leaders through challenging experiences that are safely structured to enhance leadership, self-esteem, self-reliance, concern for others, service to the community and care for the environment. Outward Bound Philadelphia has programs in several schools throughout the 7th District.
