We are here to help ensure that all of our edgers get the chance to go over the edge! We provide you with all the tips, tools and fundraising support to not only reach your fundraising goals, but surpass them. When registering, you will receive a fundraising website and we will provide you with an online fundraising toolkit and support.
Your online fundraising website can be personalized and we can provide information on how to start an email and letter writing campaign. Most participants raise a majority of their fundraising commitment through these efforts. To supplement those funds, edgers can hold local fundraisers as well.
Be a part of our team and celebrate the bravery of edgers, youth, family, and friends. It is the generosity of local partnerships that make the event a success.
