Over the Edge

September 12-13, 2019

Be bold. Be daring. Conquer your fear.

HumanKind’s Over the Edge fundraiser is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that truly lifts community awareness for our mission to strengthen individuals and families through care, counseling and education to new heights!

Our Edgers will participate in a high-adrenaline rappel down a towering 22-story building, overlooking downtown Lynchburg and the James River below. Your view will be incredible! And the exhilaration of completing a bucket-list experience will only be matched by your deep pride in actively supporting HumanKind’s mission. 




Our Over the Edge for HumanKind fundraiser supports all of the amazing programs and services here at HumanKind! Here’s a look at one of the many programs that benefit from funds raised supporting families from Lynchburg and the Greater Richmond area. 

“HumanKind has made a huge difference in our lives….if I didn’t have HumanKind I wouldn’t have a vehicle to get out, to go to school to get a better job and to provide a better life for my children.”
