Over the Edge

RESCHEDULED due to Hurricane Florence

November 9, 2018

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. DONOR CHALLENGE from October 23 – November 9. See details below on how your kind support of at least $10 gives you the donor a chance to win.




October 23 – November 9

Because of YOU we have raised more than $60,000 to date that make HumanKind’s wrap-around programs and services for people across our region possible. We are now 80% towards our fundraising goal for Over the Edge and we know that with YOUR help we will reach the finish line! To help maximize the final weeks before the big rappel we have a new challenge to offer Donors supporting Edgers!

For every $10 & above donation made to support an Edger between 10/23-11/9, THE DONOR will be entered into a drawing to win one of the following prizes:
  • Fit & Fun package – Fit Bit Blaze smart fitness watch, $50 gift card to Riverside Runners – valued at $300
  • Holiday Helper – $250 gift card to Amazon


And when you GIVE MORE, you GET MORE chances to win:

$10 donation = 1 entry

$25 donation = 3 entries

$50 donation = 8 entries

$100 donation = 20 entries


Prize drawings will be held on Wednesday, November 14



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.”
