Dear Family and Friends,


I am about to embark on a bucket list adventure on behalf of the Cancer League of Colorado.  On September 16, 2021…. I WILL BE RAPPELLING OFF OF A 38 STORY BUILDING IN DOWNTOWN DENVER!!


The Cancer League of Colorado ( is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization comprised entirely of volunteers.  The mission of the organization is to raise money for cancer research and related services.  The organization has no paid staff, no offices, and 100% of donations go directly to cancer research and cancer patient services.  Since 1985 the Cancer League of Colorado has donated over $16 Million in grant awards toward cancer research.

My goal is to raise $10,000 for the Cancer League of Colorado.  To do this, I am asking for your support as I rappel down a 408’ tall building!


I have certain family and friends who I intend to honor in this effort.  Some who lost the battle with cancer and some who are still fighting!  Please help me in two ways: 1. By making a donation to the Cancer League of Colorado and 2. By sending me the names of loved ones that I can honor on your behalf as I rappel down the building.  Please know that I am in fact terrified of heights!  That is how committed I am to this effort!  Your support would be greatly appreciated.


You may donate in two ways:

1.     If by check, please make it out to Cancer League of Colorado and include “Pete Thompson Over the Edge” in the notes section and send it to the Cancer League of Colorado at PO Box 5373, Englewood, CO 80155-5373.

2.      You can also contribute online by going to



Finally, if you know anyone who has been touched by cancer and might be interested in supporting this mission, please send them the link to   It is truly a great cause and …….I AM JUMPING OFF OF A BUILDING!


Thanks again for your help,


Pete Thompson
