Jay Cochrane performs Skywalk 2012, the greatest Building-to-Building highwire performance in North American history, not once but every night from July 6, 2012, to September 24, 2012. When he is done with the 81 dates (weather permitting), Jay Cochrane will set a cumulative distance record approaching 20 miles (30 kilometers) on the 1,300 foot long highwire stretching from the Skylon Tower, 521 feet tall, to the Hilton Fallsview Hotel, Canada's tallest hotel at 581 feet tall. Jay Cochrane raises funds for children's charities at all of his skywalks. Skywalk 2012 by Jay Cochrane is benefiting Tender Wishes and the Boys and Girls Club of Niagara Falls, Canada.
