Inaugural Over the Edge Event Reaches Great Heights

by | Aug 12, 2021 | Uncategorized

Athlete Thomas Smith. WBAL-TV reporter Jennifer Franciotti, and DJ Chris Kopec kicked off our inaugural Over the Edge event on August 20th. Representatives from several of our Home Town Heroes (nurses, police, teacher) also rappelled down the 12 stories of 6100 Merriweather Building. Some 70 individuals followed on Saturday in this exciting event. The event raised $111,000!

Special thanks goes to Greg Fitchett and the Howard Hughes Corporation, our Presenting Sponsor along with Whting-Turner Construction Co.; Team Builder Sponsors Allan Homes, Integrated Waste Analysts, and Pioneer Services; and Fearless Leader Sponsors Bohler, Manekin Corporation; Mackenzie; and HBW Construction. Thank you also to Bus Boys and Poets who provided lunches for the rappellers and volunteers and to DJ Chris Kopec and DJ Steve Towne for making the event so festive along with MC Jeff Abel.  These sponsors and volunteers made the event possible and such a success.
