OVER THE EDGE FOR DUKE CHILDREN’S

HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO BE AN EDGER?

Take a leap for the children and families who come to Duke Children's for hope and for healing.

Duke Children’s invites you to 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.

Learn more about our first Over the Edge for Duke Children's which was held October 13, 2018. 55 participants raised over $104,000 for Duke Children's! 

Information for the next Over the Edge, including dates and how to be involved, will be announced in spring of 2019.

Participant information for the 2018 event 

Edgers who reached the fundraising minimum of $1,000 rappelled over the side of the historic 21c Museum Hotel in downtown Durham! Our rappel date was October 13, 2018. 

Please note: All donations to Over the Edge for Duke Children's are final and non-refundable. Edgers who raised $1,000 minimum or paid the difference by Sunday, October 7, at 11:59pm Eastern Standard Time, went Over the Edge. Once an Edger reached their $1,000 goal, they were allowed to secure their rappelling time and slot.
