Some organizations hold silent auctions, but we're not really the silent type! Over the Edge is an opportunity to push the limits, experience an adventure of a life-time and support the heart of our community.
In partnership with Over The Edge USA, The Greater Downtown Council is hosting a rappelling event the like of which has never occurred in Duluth. On July 11th, a limited number of participants will have the chance to go OVER THE EDGE and rappell nine stories from the Sellwood Building on Superior Street. BONUS...you'll have a crowd as it's happening during our annual Sidewalk Days Festival!
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
The Process is Simple: to secure a rope in this thrilling, once-in-a-lifetime event, all you have to do is create a personal fundraising page by selecting the blue button above or clicking here and raise a minimum of $1,000 to go OVER THE EDGE! Once you create your page, customize it with text, pictures, and let people know why you're raising money for such a worthy cause.
Is this an off-the-wall fundraiser? Absolutely- that's the fun of it! This fundraiser helps support the promotion of Duluth's Downtown, with a key focus on retail development.
The Greater Downtown Council is a 501(c)(6) non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and supporting the development of a clean, safe and vibrant Downtown. The GDC produces numerous events from the Sidewalk Days Festival to Movies in the Park as well as the popular Clean & Safe Team.
