All of us have to take leaps of faith in our lives, but never before has that leap been so...literal.
On October 4th, RiverRocks, along with Boy Scouts of America, will host Over the Edge, Presented by SunTrust Bank, an event that gives participants the chance to rappel 20 stories from the top of the Chattanooga SunTrust Building, one of Chattanooga's tallest buildings. YOU are invited to take part in this year's challenge!
Over the Edge, has been conducted all across North America since 2003 and its team of professionals teach and guide rappelers and will ensure their perfect safety record remains intact. Over the Edge is for anyone - those who have never climber before to experienced rappelers, and has included people aged 18 to 86. Even CEOs and official mascots have been part of the fun.
Of course, the best part about the whole event is that the funds raised will go directly towards charitable endeavors, helping local Boy Scouts of America programs and land conservation efforts of RiverRocks in equal parts.
The Chattanooga SunTrust Building, owned and operated by the Simpson Organization, is the perfect place to experience this unique adventure during RiverRocks. Over the Edge--Presented by SunTrust Bank, will show off one of downtown's most amazing properties with this breathtaking event. Support from Chattanooga Jaguar, Porsche, Land Rover, WRCB TV Channel 3, the Times Free Press and Clear Channel Media is allowing this event to happen.
Brave souls wishing to go Over the Edge will make a gift or commit to raising a minimum of $1,000 (with incentive packages at the $1,500 and $2,000 level) in order to show their family, friends and business associates how simple it is to rappel 20 stories! Start saving your money and challenge all your friends to contribute to this great cause while experiencing the adventure of a lifetime.
