What is Over the Edge?

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.

Who Can Go Over the Edge?

  • Anyone who has moxie and can raise a minimum of $1,000.
  • Must weigh 110-300 lbs and be 14+ years old on event day (Edgers under age 18 years old must have permission from a parent or legal guardian).
  • Rappel spots are limited and will be filled by the first 92 Edgers to raise $1,000.
  • No prior rappelling experience or training required.
