ABOUT OVER THE EDGE FOR DUKE CHILDREN'S

We want YOU to to help us reach new heights for Duke Children's! We're looking for brave supporters to help raise money for Duke Children's patient care, research, physician education, 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.

The next Over the Edge for Duke Children's date has not yet been announced. Keep an eye on this page for updates.
