Over the Edge for Victory set for September 6

Posted: Tuesday, August 27, 2019 by: Jackie Cummins | Category: Arts and Entertainment

What’s it like to crawl down the side of a building like Spiderman? On Friday, September 6, 85 supporters of The Victory Center, in partnership with Over the Edge Global, will find out as they participate in Over the Edge for Victory and rappel 16 stories down the Toledo Edison Building in downtown Toledo. Rappellers are raising funds and awareness for The Victory Center, a non-profit cancer wellness center located in Toledo, with a satellite office in Perrysburg. This year’s Sky Presenting Sponsor is ProMedica.

Since 2008, Over the Edge Global has helped non-profits raise more than $50 million and put 30,000 fundraisers safely “over the edge.” With this unique event, organizations are able to give their supporters a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to rappel as friends and family cheer them on.

Individuals must raise a minimum of $1,000 for their cause in order to secure a rappelling position. To register, donate to a rappeller, or learn more about the event visit www.ote4victory.org.

Eight-five brave people, including several of The Victory Center’s participant survivors, therapists, and board members will rappel on Friday, September 6, beginning at 9 am and continuing throughout the day. Last year’s event raised more than $150,000 to support all of the free programs and services provided by The Victory Center.

Along with the rappelling, this year's festivities will include a community art event, games, food trucks, free ice cream provided by Huntington Bank, music, Imagination Station, and more!

The Victory Center was founded in 1996 to support and educate cancer patients and those closest to them by providing services aimed at meeting the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of those touched by cancer. Services are provided at no cost to patients. For more information about The Victory Center’s support of cancer patients, please visit www.thevictorycenter.org or call 419-531-7600.
