What is Over the Edge?
Over the Edge is a once-in-a-lifetime experience where participants rappel nine stories down Omni Charlottesville Hotel — to raise money for girl leadership in the 36-county area within Central, Southside, Southwest and Western Virginia. Over the Edge, a special events company, assists Edgers the entire way. Edgers are treated like VIPs, while supporters cheer during the thrilling descent! Edgers commit to raise $1,000 from their network of friends, families and co-workers, using a personalized online fundraising page or collecting cash and checks.
