What is Over the Edge?
Over the Edge is a special events company that provides signature events for non-profit organizations throughout the United States, Canada and other parts of the World. Participants raise donations for a non-profit in exchange for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to rappel Over the Edge of a local high-rise building.

Is it Safe?
Yes! Every Over the Edge event is set up as an industrial worksite and as a result, is compliant with all federal and state OSHA Fall Protection Standards and OSHA Federal and State Laws. To get more information, click here.
What to Expect:
We are working with the City of Montgomery to make this an event that not only benefits HIM, but Montgomery as well! We will have a block party at the 40 Four Building as part of the rappelling event, which will include vendors, retailers, music and more while watching people rappel. This will be a free event for people to come and watch people take the plunge and go “over the edge”!
Can Teams Be Created to Fundraise?
Yes! Businesses or a group of individuals can come together to raise money to send one (or more) people “over the edge”! Teams must raise a minimum of $1,000 to send one person, $2,000 for two people, etc. The team will have it’s own page where the money will be aggregated. Individuals can also join a team, which allows them to create an individual fundraising page that will be linked to the team page. People on a team can compete to see who can raise the most money for each team, with all of the money from individuals being aggregated onto the team page.
Over the Edge 2017 was a HUGE success!! We had 74 people rappel down the 40 Four Building and raised more than $100,000! We can’t wait for it to be bigger and better in 2018!
