Over the Edge

On Friday, September 22nd, 74 community leaders and supporters will be rappelling 525 Loft Apartments, Lancaster Avenue in Reading to support the youth served at Bethany Children’s Home. Each and every day, over ninety youth who have experienced trauma through abuse, neglect or abandonment are finding the strength, hope and courage to back their lives. Each Edger has raised a minimum of $1000 and has dedicated one hour of one day to stand beside our youth in their healing process to let them know they have the support needed to heal.

Over the Edge is known for its signature rappelling fundraising events all over the world and helping organizations raise millions of dollars since its inception. The second annual Over The Edge for Bethany will feature rappels by Senator David Argall, Jason Vanatta, Savage L&B Dodge, Slapshot, Dr. Patrick Borja of the Spine & Wellness Center, Berks County Bar Association Team, Leah Tyler of Y102 and more….

The public is welcome to attend the event and watch the Edgers rappel 525 Loft Apartments beginning at 10:00 a.m. There will be parking available at designated locations around the facility. A Base Camp area will be providing food, fun and demonstrations from local organizations to the community. Y102 will be featuring a live remote from 11am to 1pm.

All funds raised from the 2017 Over the Edge Campaign will provide support for the health and medical needs of the youth served at Bethany.

Metropolitan Companies and 525 Loft Apartments are the host site for the Over the Edge Campaign.
