Habitat-Spokane is bringing an exciting fundraising event to the top of the tallest building in Spokane. It’s called OVER THE EDGE and we have a feeling it’s going to please all the thrill-seekers out there!

Partnering with Over The Edge Global, Habitat-Spokane is inviting participants to rappel off the top of the 20-story Bank of America Building in the name of affordable homeownership. People can face their fear of heights while raising funds for the MANY Spokane families working hard to build a safe, decent, and affordable place to call home.

“The need for affordable homeownership opportunities has reached a critical high in Spokane due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Habitat-Spokane is determined to meet the needs of the growing number of families that enter our Homeownership program. Due to Covid restrictions, this means we have to get a little creative as the pandemic continues to affect large gatherings.” said Michelle Girardot, Habitat for Humanity-Spokane’s CEO. 

We’d say sending people over the edge of a building is pretty creative. 

The event focuses on the “peer-to-peer” fundraising model – which can all be done virtually. Individuals must raise $1,000 for Habitat in order to secure a rappelling spot. They can easily achieve this by asking their network of family and friends to donate to a personal fundraising page that they set up through Classy (an online peer-to-peer fundraising platform). 

There is also a “Toss Your Boss” option where co-workers can band together and chip in funds to send their boss/supervisor/manager over the edge (let’s be honest, a lot of us would love to see this happen). If they reach their goal and their boss is too scared to go over, they must match the $1,000 in funds to choose someone else to go over in their place. We think this could easily be transferred to “Toss your Teacher” or “Toss your Professor” – we’re sure the people of Spokane will get creative.

Spots are limited for this event, so we advise everyone who’s interested to sign up ASAP!
