Over the Edge

Since 2018, in collaboration with the River Valley Regional YMCA and the YWCA Northcentral PA, WASDEF has been a co-host Over the Edge: Williamsport.

The collaborative event is a fundraising partnership between the three nonprofits. It 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 down a building. 

The nonprofits first banded together in 2018 to bring the event to the city, and since then have collectively raised more than $350,000 between the three of them for their respective communities.

The 2022 event, which took place on Sept. 23, at the William Hepburn Highrise, collectively generated more than $75,000 with $13,876 raised for WASDEF! (Check out our photos from the 2022 event!)

Funds from his event help to support program grants through our Annual Fund by providing financial resources for: 

  • educational resources and technology,
  • mental health resources for students,
  • resources to support economically disadvantaged students,
  • and needs of our district as they arise.
Get Involved!

There are also a number of volunteer opportunities available during the day of the event. Reach out to learn about what volunteer positions are available.
