‘Reality Changers’ raises funds for college-bound youth through rappelling

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Watch out for people scaling the side of a 330-foot hotel building on July 17!

Folks will be rappelling down the Hilton San Diego Bayfront Hotel to raise funds for first-generation college students.

Reality Changers President and CEO Tamara Craver joined KUSI’s Elizabeth Alvarez to discuss the “Over the Edge” event on Good Morning San Diego.

Their fundraising goal is $60,000 and space is still available for rappellers who also want more people to get a college education, especially for the first time in their families.

Studies have shown that earning a college degree can significantly increase your earnings potential.

The nonprofit organization serves 8th-12th graders with tutoring, mentorship, college application assistance, and ongoing support for college students and graduates.

In 2020 alone, the organization served 550 youth.
