United Way hosts 2nd Annual Over the Edge event August 13

INDIANAPOLIS – United Way of Central Indiana is once again looking for dozens of fearless philanthropists to rappel safely and securely down a 23-story building in Indianapolis on Friday, August 13, 2021 for the second annual Over the Edge for United Way Presented by GlickArt.com. This unique fundraising opportunity for thrill seekers will benefit United Way’s Basic Needs Fund, a critical initiative to provide access to food, housing support, transportation and health services to struggling individuals, children and families in the community.
 
Over the Edge for United Way allows for 80 supporters to rappel down from the rooftop of 220 Keystone Tower on Meridian Street. Each participant commits to raise at least $1,000 from friends, family members, co-workers, and neighbors. In its inaugural year, Over the Edge raised more than $148,000 to support the Basic Needs Fund. As of today, civic leaders who have pledged their participation include Rod Cotton, senior vice president at Roche; Deborah Daniels, partner at Krieg DeVault, LLP; and David P. Lewis, managing director of PWC WNTS Tax Policy Services and president of Indy Championships Fund.
