Are you a thrill seeker with a heart for your community?
Face your fears. So our community’s most vulnerable don’t have to.
It’s scary for those who wake up in the morning not knowing where they will sleep that night, if they will eat that day, if they will be assaulted or abused that day.
On Saturday, September 7, 2019, OVER THE EDGE participants will help alleviate some of that daily fear faced by so many… by rappelling off the roof of the Oxford Hotel in downtown Bend.
You’re invited to rappel, volunteer, or sponsor the event!
Edgers – those who rappel – are invited to raise funds to support our community in exchange for the exhilarating experience of rappelling off the tallest building in Central Oregon. The Oxford Hotel stands at 7 stories and 70 feet and will offer quite a thrill to Edgers.
Participants need not be brave or young or non-disabled to go OVER THE EDGE. However, there are a limited number of spots, so interested folks should sign up today, as registration is now open. Once registered, Edgers set up a personal fundraising page, reach their fundraising goal, and secure their spot to rappel off the Oxford Hotel on September 7th.
In addition to the rappel, United Way will be hosting a ground party – closing NW Minnesota Ave and NW Lava Rd to traffic in order to host food vendors, a Sunriver Brewing Company beer garden, activities, DJs, and more.
For those who are not ready to rappel, United Way gives other opportunities to partner with one of Bend’s most reputable and longest-standing nonprofit organizations. The local nonprofit is seeking business sponsors for the event, as well as volunteers.
