Cedar Rapids Community Kids Count!

Rappel For A Cause Learn More

People may think I am crazy for wanting to fall off the side of a building, but... 

I am excited to be apart of Heartland YFC 's first ever Over The Edge event in downtown Cedar Rapids on Saturday, August 19th. I will be going over the edge of the historic Iowa Building to support YFC's mission to reach at-risk youth in Cedar Rapids. 

YFC follows a great mission to support the community I live and work in and I am proud to assist such a great cause! There are so many kids out there that just need a little helping hand and I want to be apart of that! 

YFC's website showed me:

In Linn County...

  • 53% of all 6th-12th-grade students have been bullied
  • 20% live in single family homes
  • 25% of all 6th-12th-grade students lack self-confidence
  • 12% of all 6th-12th-grade students have thought about suicide; 6% have come up with a plan to take their life; 3% have attempted to take their life
  • 51% of all 6th-12th-grade students feel their neighborhoods don't support them
  • 39% of all 6th-12th-grade students don't hold positive values
  • 28% of 11th graders don't feel they have a happy home or that an adult supports them at home

Please consider helping me to help the community by giving to my Over the Edge fundraiser!    

I have added a couple of videos from past events that might give you a better idea of what I will be doing to help YFC, enjoy!
