Sister Cities Board Chair Brad Mahon to rappel 26 story building
It’s official. Sister Cities Chairman of the Board, Brad Mahon, will rappel the XTO building at 714 Main Street in downtown Fort Worth, Friday, June 24th at 3:36 p.m.
Mahon challenged the members of Sister Cities to raise $7,500 for the organization and he in turn promised to join the Downtown Fort Worth, Inc. event, Over the Edge, and rappel down the side of a 26 story building. The challenge was met and Mahon is living up to his part of the bargain.
When asked why he wanted to do this, Mahon said, “Besides being a little bit insane, I want to highlight Fort Worth Sister Cities International. It’s a great organization that I’ve been involved with for many years, with award-winning youth programs for the last 25 years and an annual economic impact to the City of over $2.2 million.”
Members of Sister Cities and friends of Mahon from all over the country have donated funds to support Sister Cities and to see Mahon keep his promise. “What a wonderful gesture Brad is making by supporting Sister Cities in this way. We all love this organization but no where in the job description for Chairman of the Board did I see this mentioned,” said incoming Chair Ann Rice.
Over the Edge is being staged by Downtown Fort Worth, Inc. to improve Fort Worth’s wonderful Downtown. Support from the event will help support projects like the JFK Tribute, the downtown marketing programs, Burnett Park and Heritage Park.
