CN Tower Edge Walk

“You must be mad!!!” …”you must be crazy!!!” …”you must be nuts!!!”

That’s what people have been saying!

Who are we and what are we doing?

Please click to visit the Edge Walk Angels Facebook page!

We are “The Edge Walk Angels” - 6 ‘mad’ ‘crazy’ RUSH fans with a tendency to be a little ‘nuts’ as described above. We are 3 Scots, a Canuck, a Merkin and an Ozzie all making our pilgrimage to Toronto to see RUSH in concert, and also raise funds for the nominated RUSH Eucon 2012 charity; The Downs Syndrome Association.

The 6 of us are Mike Sword, Pamela Amos and David McLeod from Scotland, Ray Subject from Canada, Jennifer Ayers from the USA and Tracey Thomson from Australia. We have all been brought together by 'The RUSH Atlantic Connection' page on Facebook.

On 14 October 2012 we will be making our pilgrimage, from across the globe, to see RUSH live in concert on their Clockwork Angels Tour, in Toronto. However earlier in the day we will embark on one of the scariest adventures any of us have ever done!!

We are doing the CN Tower Edge Walk, at Toronto’s iconic landmark, The CN Tower, 1100ft/356m above the ground.
See the video to understand! Few have ventured and most have walked away repeating the quotes above!

It scares the bejeezus out of us all, but we all WANT to be ABLE to do it …what we needed was an incentive!! That incentive is your support and our doing it for charity.

The nominated charity chosen by RUSH Eucon 2012 is the Downs Syndrome Association. The RUSH Eucon 2012 event is being held in Newcastle UK on 13 October 2012. The 6 of us won’t be there, but, want to ensure that the RUSH community is ‘not missing out on the promise of adventure’.

Thank you again for your generosity…
…Mike, Pamela, David, Ray, Jennifer & Tracey.
