Over the Edge for the Flynn Center '17

The 3rd Annual Over the Edge for the Flynn fundraiser!

Here's your chance to take part in a unique experience that stands high above the rest. On September 2, 100 intrepid adventurers will go Over The Edge by rappelling nine stories down the side of one of downtown Burlington's tallest buildings: The Courtyard Marriott Harbor Hotel.

Over the Edge for the Flynn is an opportunity for participants to push their limits and engage in something they will never forget. The Flynn opens up new worlds to over 200,000 people with its cultural programs, including 38,000 schoolchildren with its student matinees and educational programs, and it's with that spirit that we invite you to take in the 360 degree view of Burlington and Lake Champlain as you take that big step Over The Edge!

Check out this great video of our event!

Proceeds from Over the Edge for the Flynn will go toward the Flynn's cultural and educational programs, including scholarships for FlynnArts students, subsidies for student matinees, and subsidized tickets for our social and human services partners. Through this fundraiser, you will help to ensure accessibility to the performing arts for all children in the region so that they can experience the wonder of live performance, participate in engaging workshops, and attend other educational programs.

There are three ways to participate:

Rappellers will earn their spot to go Over The Edge by raising pledges on a personalized online fundraising page. Since this event is limited to just 100 rappellers, we expect available rappelling spots to be claimed quickly!  

  • Individuals: To go Over the Edge, participants must raise a minimum of $1000. The majority of fundraising is done online through our donation portal.
  • Company Teams:  Three or more employees from a business or organization rappel, with each raising $1000 or more. All company teams will receive event day recognition.
  • Toss The Boss: Send your (willing) boss Over the edge by raising a minimum of $1500.  Rally your co-workers to make it a company wide effort to raise funds and see your boss take that big step over the side of the Courtyard Marriott!  Companies that participate in Toss The Boss will receive event day recognition.
