OVER THE EDGE FOR DUKE CHILDREN’S

To protect the health of our community, Duke Health Development and Alumni Affairs (DHDAA) is following Duke University guidelines to cancel, reschedule, or reformat events and meetings through April 20, 2020.

Over the Edge for Duke Children's will be postponed. For additional questions, please contact Duke Children's Development at 919.385.3138.

DHDAA does not take lightly the decision to cancel, reschedule or reformat events that are important to you. We made this decision only after reviewing a range of options available in the rapidly changing situation in North Carolina and nationwide. Our goal is to minimize the risk in which our staff, donors, and friends are exposed to the COVID-19 virus, and to protect the members of our community who may be at elevated risk.

These decisions are consistent with the latest data and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and other public health officials, including our own faculty experts. The health and well-being of you, our most valuable partners, is of the utmost importance to us.

Online registration is currently closed.

We are actively working to schedule a new date for the event. When that date has been identified, we will communicate with all existing registered participants and reopen registration. All current fundraising dollars will transfer to the new event date when it is established. Edgers who have met their fundraising goal will be contacted to reschedule their rappel registration time when a new event date is determined. 

Thank you for your support of Duke Children's!
