Over the Edge 2017

Saturday, June 17, 2017


Are you brave enough to go Over the Edge? 

Raise $1,000 for United Way of the River Cities, and you will get the opportunity to rappel down the West Virginia Building in downtown Huntington! 

Here are the basics. 

  • No climbing or rappelling experience is necessary!
  • You must weigh between 100 and 300 lbs. 
  • The fundraising minimum is $1,000 to rappel. 
  • The registration fee is $100 (or $75 before March 31) and will count toward your $1,000 minimum. 
  • Rappel times are assigned in the order that the minimum is met—the sooner you raise $1,000, the more times you will have to choose from!
  • Participants are provided with a personal fundraising website, fundraising coaching, tools, and encouragement in order to help you reach your goal!
