To date, 40 community members have signed up to participate. In all, Bethany hopes to generate $125,000 through the high-reaching fundraiser made possible through the generosity of the Shuman Development Group and VA Productions.

Over the past decade, Over the Edge has hosted more than 700 successful rappelling events, raising more than $70 million for nonprofit partners.

Established in 1863, Bethany Children’s Home provides a safe place of nurture, protection, and supportive care to aid our residents in their self-understanding, growth, and healing toward a brighter, healthier future.

“If you can take an hour to face your fear of going over the edge, you can help our kids overcome the challenges they face daily and begin their healing process”, said Development Director, Meggan Kerber.
