About Event

THANK YOU rappellers and sponsors!!  Together we raised just under $50,000 to help our Struggling Working Families in Lake County!!  Go to https://goo.gl/f7HF2N for photos of the July event.  Hope to see you next year on October 12, 2019 when we rappel Centier Tower again.  Thank you!!

Over The Edge is a unique fundraising event that allows participants an opportunity to raise money for the Lake Area United Way and rappel down the iconic Centier Corporate Centre in Merrillville, IN. All funds raised will be invested in strategies to help Struggling Working Families in Lake County Indiana. 

Go Over The Edge for the 1 in 4 families in Lake County who is working hard, sometimes multiple jobs, but can't afford basic necessities like safe housing, reliable transportation, healthcare, quality child care and healthy food for the family.  These families are faced with difficult choices daily.  Put food on the table or gas in the car?  Take a sick child to the doctor or pay the utility bill?

Go Over The Edge to help Struggling Working Families who are On The Edge of Survival!
