This month we cover the recent success of Building Adventure 2021! This high-adrenaline fundraiser for the Philadelphia Outward Bound School (POBS) in which participants rappel down a skyscraper in Center City was an unqualified success!
With the participation of 111 rappellers and some 2,000 individual donations, POBS was able to exceed our goal of $200,000, to raise an eye-popping $313,000!
Highlights of the event include rappels by former Philly Mayor (and POBS co-founder) Michael Nutter, chefs extraordinaire Michael Solomonov and Jennifer Carroll, and Philly team mascots Swoop (Eagles) and Franklin (Sixers).
Two Philadelphia teachers from POBS' network of partner schools were drawn at random to participate in Building Adventure 2021. Learn how they overcame their fears and found their inner strength.
If you have been involved with POBS, or you are an alumni of any Outward Bound program who lives in the Philadelphia region, we want to hear from you! We are cultivating a group of alumni for special events, get-togethers, activities and more. Join in and stay connected!
