Rappelling for a Reason

Randi after rappelling in gearJ.C. Hart has worked with and supported United Way’s campaigns for several years. One of the campaigns we enjoy participating in each year is Over the Edge. Over the Edge helps support United Way’s basic needs initiatives. This cause helps stabilize people in crisis, ensuring they have access to healthy food, safe housing, quality healthcare, and reliable transportation. We love to support this cause not only because it provides great services to our community, but it’s also incredibly fun.
Philanthropists can sign up to go Over the Edge for United Way to willingly rappel down the 23-story 220 N. Meridian building (300 feet tall). To be eligible for the rappelling, one must receive at least $1,500 in donations. This year, they even had an option to sky dive with a higher donation limit to reach. Randi Ireland, Penrose on Mass, reached her goal and on August 11th, she “rappelled for a reason” those 23-stories like the true champion she is.
United Way was able to raise $132,583 and 80 philanthropists went Over the Edge. We’re so glad to continue to support this campaign each year and hope to watch more of our Team rappel or sky dive next year. Every person in our community should have access to these stabilizing basic needs.
