Over the Edge is an urban rappelling fundraiser that benefits three local non-profit agencies. The River Valley Regional YMCA, The YWCA of North Central PA, and Williamsport Area School District Education Foundation have partnered to bring this amazing experience to downtown Williamsport in support of our commitment to change lives through health, education, and empowerment. This event provides both donors and thrill seekers with the opportunity to raise $1,000 or more in support of one or all three of these organizations and then rappel from the 105 ft. tall William Hepburn Highrise.
