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 $100,000 between the three of them for their respective communities.
The 2020 event, which took place on Sept. 19 at the Genetti Hotel, and raised $6,612 for WASDEF!
Funds for this year's event will provide COVID-19 relief funds for the school district to support:
- educational resources and technology,
- mental health resources for students,
- resources to support economically disadvantaged students,
- and needs of our district as they arise.
