The third annual Williamsport Over the Edge event will be on Saturday, September 19 at the Genetti Hotel. Each participating individual is raising money to support the YWCA Northcentral PA, River Valley Regional YMCA and/or the Williamsport Area School District Education Foundation. Every one who raises at least $1,000 will rappel over the Genetti Hotel.
This is a great chance for those who need a little adventure. Although Covid-19 kept many individuals inside this year, we wanted to make our event happen even more. This is the chance to get out and raise money for three community non-profits. It’s also a pretty fun day so we don’t want you to miss out!
Over the Edge is an event that literally takes people over the edge of a building. This year, we have secured the highest building in Downtown Williamsport: The Genetti Hotel.
We are super excited to show the city of Williamsport the dedication our community members have to raising money for a cause they believe in. People who choose to rappel are allowed creative ways to raise money. And, if they need help, we have some fundraising ideas for you to try!
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, Over the Edge has additional safety measures in place for both workers and participants. We also want to add that this event is always safe, with trained members checking the ropes and harnesses every step of the way. They are also great for encouragement for those who are a little unsure of walking down the side of a building.
YWCA staff members are on site throughout the day and some of them even partake in the activity!
