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 from the top of the Lycoming County Housing Authority’s William Hepburn High Rise apartment building downtown.
The nonprofits banded together in 2018 to bring the event to the city for the first time, and collectively have raised more than $100,000 between the three of them for their respective communities.
The 2019 event raised $10,835 for WASDEF!
Over the Edge is due to return on Saturday, September 19, 2020! This year, the event is going to new heights. Participants will rappel from the top of The Genetti Hotel in downtown Williamsport!
Participation in this year's event will help to launch a COVID-19 Relief Fund for the school district, which will support:
- educational resources and technology,
- mental health resources for students,
- resources to support economically disadvantaged students,
- and needs of our district as they arise.
