Known for its unique rappelling fundraising events around the world and helping organizations raise millions of dollars, Over The Edge is coming to Peoria! This inaugural event supports Peoria Friendship House as they minister to the community and work to alleviate the burdens of poverty. Individuals and teams are invited to witness a riverfront view like none other, by earning a spot to rappel off the Chase Bank building in downtown Peoria. Every person who raises a minimum of $1,000 will secure a spot as an edger. The sky is the limit with fundraising, but not required to participate. If nerves take over, donors can join the fun in our VIP Chicken Coop.

 

To wrap up a day of fun, we invite all edgers and chickens alike to stick around for the Edge Peoria party to celebrate the families and individuals that will receive services because of your support. Hope to see you there!
