City Skyline Challenge raises funds for Outward Bound programs

Local officials, celebrities and private citizens rappelled on Friday down the side of the Hilton San Francisco Union Square, San Francisco’s largest hotel, for the City Skyline Challenge.

Participants in this year’s event, which raises funds for youth scholarships for Outward Bound California’s programs, include former state Sen. Mark Leno, Recreation and Parks General Manager Phil Ginsburg, Sister Roma of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence and filmmaker Eli Craig.

Last year’s City Skyline Challenge raised $270,000.
