Friday, August 11; 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
CHARISM is offering a unique and exclusive experience that stands high above the rest. In fact, 110 feet above the rest! There will only be 100 spots available to go Over the Edge of the Black Building with CHARISM this year.
How it Works:
To go Over the Edge, participants (Edgers) fund-raise to receive the thrilling opportunity to rappel down the side of the Black Building on Broadway in downtown Fargo. Each Edger will receive their own online fundraising page to raise their goal. Once the goal is achieved, your spot will be secured and you will be set to rappel on August 12th!
How to Get Involved:
You can register online by visiting CHARISM.ORG/OTE or
contact Brittany at 701.356.0262 to get a registration form to fill out.
There is a $50 registration fee. It will go towards your fundraising goal and you will receive a tax-deductible donation receipt.
How It Benefits:
We have all experienced challenges in our lives, together we can conquer this challenge to provide a way for change, and a chance for a child. A chance for them to take part in educational after school programs, to attend summer camps, and to connect with caring mentors. CHARISM works to reduce barriers to participation to give children a chance and provide them with opportunities to flourish. 100% of funds raised will benefit CHARISM out of school time programming.
Let's conquer this challenge together, to make a way for change, to give a child a chance!
Thursday, August 10, the Over the Edge USA team will set up the ropes – in the afternoon we will have approx. 10 spots (depending on time) available for people to go Over the Edge. Thursday evening will be our ramp up to event day.
Then on the morning of Friday, August 11th we will kick off event day which will last throughout the entire day with 100 rappelling spots available. We will have part of Broadway shut down right in front of the Black Building, there will be spectators and entertainment on the ground zone.
We would love for you to be involved, and would be interested in chatting more about a good fit for you.
We currently are in need of volunteers would you be able to help spread the word? https://charismote.wixsite.com/ote2017/volunteers
