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 $275,000 between the three of them for their respective communities.
The 2021 event, which took place on Sept. 25, at the Genetti Hotel, collectively generated $98,532 with a net total of $22,295 raised for WASDEF! (Check out our photos from the 2021 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.
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.
