Over the Edge for Duke Children's 

April 20, 2024 at 21c Museum Hotel in Downtown Durham 

Registration now open!

Are you ready to go Over the Edge for Duke Children's? We want YOU to help us reach new heights for Duke Children's! We're looking for brave supporters to raise money for Duke Children's and the chance to rappel down a building in downtown Durham! It may not be for the faint of heart, but it’s an experience you don’t want to miss. Plus, when you participate you pledge to take the leap for the children and families who come to Duke Children's for hope and for healing, and for the physicians, nurses, and staff who work tirelessly to provide the best possible patient care.

Participants who achieve the fundraising goal of $1,000 or more will get to rappel 17 stories down the side of the historic 21c Museum Hotel in downtown Durham. No experience necessary, but spots are limited!

Support a Duke Children's provider or team!
