Registration is OPEN for Over the Edge!

Are you SO OVER the fact that thousands of individuals and families struggle with basic needs right here on Long Island? 

 So many have faced fear and obstacles that most of us can’t ever imagine.  But they’re able to take the brave step every day to face their fears and overcome their hurdles. 

Think you have what it takes to go Over the Edge to help our neighbors overcome those hurdles? Be one of the first 92 brave individuals to raise at least $1,000 to secure your rappelling spot and Edger status!

Soak in the breathtaking views of the New York City skyline! You’ll get the once-in-a-lifetime experience of rappelling down the side of a building and the knowledge that you’ve helped so many local families in need.
