Over the Edge

September 9-10, 2020

Live RappelLING Event – CANCELLED for 2020

BUT YOU CAN STILL HELP
Be kind. Be caring. Be bold. 
HELP PROTECT THE SHORTFALL TO ENSURE CHILDREN AND FAMILIES GET THE HELP THEY DESPERATELY NEED NOW

Every year more than 60 brave people raise vital funds to help local families and go OVER THE EDGE for HumanKind with a rappel down the Bank of the James building in downtown Lynchburg. These funds find safe homes for children in foster care, connect a new mother who is isolated to support, provide counseling for families in crisis, offer financial education and fair interest car loans, job training, early childhood education resources and serves thousands of people each year to instill hope and equip them with the tools to build a strong foundation for life.

And right now there is a growing list of families struggling to survive the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

This year’s event has to be CANCELLED and will leave a $60,000 shortfall. Instead of asking you to rappel from the top of a building, will you please help with both feet on the ground?

YOUR help could be the difference for one child, one family. When you give to Protect our Shortfall you ensure that a child, neighbor, or family gets the help they so desperately need.

Can we count on you to be kind, caring, and bold? This time without leaving the ground. Recruit your friends, family and co-workers to join you – and together we can erase the shortfall to help as many families as possible.
