What is Over the Edge
Click here to find out!!
Over The Edge for Kids’ Sake is a once in a lifetime opportunity to do something fun while raising important dollars in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters' one-to-one mentoring program.
Participants who achieve a minimum fundraising goal of $1000 will have the opportunity to Go Over The Edge of the historic Hotel Blackhawk, an 11 story building located in downtown Davenport.
Rappelling will take place on Saturday, August 24.
Become an Edger: Individuals interested in going Over the Edge register and set a minimum goal of raising $1,000. The registration includes a $100 deposit that is applied to your $1,000 goal minimum. Registration secures your spot in the lineup and gives you access to the fundraising platform and supports provided by Big Brothers Big Sisters to achieve your fundraising goal. Supports include: 1) a fundraising tool kit, 2) personal fundraising webpage to share your story and collect donations, 3) two gathering events that will educate and inspire you to exceed your goal, and 4) direct access to BBBSMV staff and committee members to assist you in your efforts.
Become a Fearless Leader Team: In addition to individual “Edgers” there is an opportunity for area businesses and organizations to get in on the fun! Our “Fearless Leaders” program engages area employers, organizations and groups of individuals who want to send multiple individuals "over the edge". Fearless Leader Teams agree to raise a minimum of $2,000 for the first edger and $750 for each additional edger. The team sets the strategy for achieving the goal AND selecting the representative. BBBSMV provides great resources to help you plan and execute your strategy, including custom fundraising pages, workplace and employee engagement and donation strategies and much more.
The BBBSMV Over The Edge committee will be working to secure sponsorships and incentive prizes to encourage both “Edgers” and “Fearless Leader Teams” to raise as much as possible!
