2009 Urban Descent will be held from the 30 April - 2nd May 2010 at the WACA Ground.
Urban Descent evolved from the Allendale Abseil event which commenced in Perth, Western Australia in 2002 to raise money to support the work of the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation. The event has steadily expanded over the years. Participants from all walks of life take part, including individuals, schools, the corporate sector, media and sports stars. Since its inception, over 1300 participants have taken part and raised over $1.3 million.
