How many people could see themselves abseiling down 27 floors of a Melbourne high-rise building?
About 200, Anglicare Victoria hopes, as it seeks to raise support for children in foster care.
Anglicare Bendigo regional development manager Michael Oerlemans will be among Altitude Shift's participants. It will be his first time abseiling in more than 30 years.
Mr Oerlemans said the April 17-18 event would be a challenge.
"But the whole point of it is to challenge yourself because kids in care are challenged every day," he said.
Challenges for children in foster care included being in a new home and being away from family.
Mr Oerlemans has worked with vulnerable children and young people and their families for more than 10 years.
He joined Anglicare Victoria about three years ago, having previously worked for the Department of Health and Human Services.
This will be the first time he has participated in Altitude Shift.
Mr Oerlemans said he used to do a lot of caving, back when he was younger and living in New South Wales. That was probably when he last abseiled, he said.
He is about a tenth of the way into his fundraising target for the Altitude Shift, which is $10,000.
