WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (JULY 16, 2021) — River Valley Regional YMCA, YWCA Northcentral PA and the Williamsport Area School District Education Foundation (WASDEF) are pleased to announce the return of Over the Edge (OTE) this fall.
The event, scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 25, 2021, is a fundraising partnership between the three nonprofits. OTE allows members of the community to voluntarily commit to raise at least $1,000 for the nonprofit of their choice — or have it divided evenly among all three — in a daring exchange to rappel from the top of The Genetti Hotel in downtown Williamsport.
The nonprofits first banded together in 2018 to bring the event to the city for the first time last fall and have collectively raised more than $180,000 for their organizations through the efforts of more than 100 participants.
Registration is now open for those ready and willing to act boldly for the benefit of their community through the work of these organizations.
Once signed up, individuals will receive a personalized webpage and toolkit to guide them through the fundraising process.
In addition to that, each organization will be available to provide tips, best practices, special opportunities and unique ideas for those rappelling.
Participants also will be invited to a free VIP reception the night before the event where they can meet each other, celebrate — and be celebrated — for the work they’ve done to benefit the organizations.
