Shatterproof, a national non-profit dedicated to reducing the devastation that addiction to prescription drugs, illicit drugs, and alcohol causes to families, will host a public rappel 20 stories off of the Omni Austin Downtown. It is the final event in the third annual Shatterproof Challenge Rappel, a series of rappel events across major cities with hundreds of participants.

Austin’s own Top Chef Paul Qiu and James Beard Finalist Philip Speer are participating in the event. Team Leader Speer has enlisted eight other local chefs to rappel with them, as well as the hosts of KLBJ’s The Todd and Don Show, Todd Jefferies and Don Pryor.

All dollars raised directly support Shatterproof. The challenge is open to rappelers of all levels, including first timers. Each participant must raise at least $1,000 to be able to rappel. For more information, go to
