Child Advocacy Center’s Over The Edge Event

331 Park Central E Springfield, MO 65806

Combine extreme adventure and extreme community impact, and you get Over the Edge! This unique event stands high above the rest! Over the Edge challenges 92 participants to raise a minimum of $1,000 for the Child Advocacy Center in exchange for the opportunity to rappel 11 stories down the Sky 11 Building in downtown Springfield. By signing up YOU are helping give children and families access to much-needed resources, support education and training for our communities to recognize and prevent child abuse and neglect, and allowing children and teens to feel seen, heard, and begin to heal. Development Director, Lori Barnes Miller said,

“If children can overcome their fear and face their abusers, we as adults can overcome our fear for 15 minutes to provide them with that opportunity.”

Every day, children are choosing to be brave, face fears, and speak up. If they are courageous enough to speak up – will you consider Braving the Edge and Rappelling for a Cause?

No rappelling experience is required and a trained, Over the Edge professional, will guide you through every step of the experience.

Registration is now open! Consider challenging a friend to rappel with you, start a fundraising competition, put together a team, or establish a theme and rappel in costume…the opportunities for fun are limitless. Once you register, you will receive an email with all the resources you need to make Over the Edge an event you’ll never forget!
