Big Brothers Big Sisters invites you to go Over the Edge on Saturday, October 14th to provide life-changing mentors for local children.
Over the Edge provides a once-in-a-lifetime experience to rappel 17-stories down a Charlotte skyscraper as you raise funds and awareness for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Carolinas, celebrating 45 years of improving children's lives by providing one-to-one mentors.

  • Edgers must weigh between 100 and 300 pounds. 
  • Edgers must raise a minimum of $1,200 to rappel down the Hyatt on Oct. 14. $1,300 allows you to descend with a GoPro camera on your helmet. We will reserve your edger spot once you have raised $100.
