Over the Edge West Michigan is a premier event for Easterseals Michigan exclusive to Grand Rapids. Every person who raises a minimum of $1,500 will secure a place on the ropes to rappel. Additionally, for those who exceed that goal, there are incentives to enhance the rappelling experience. We are asking Over the Edge participants to step into the shoes of Easterseals Michigan consumers: to possibly face a fear, complete a personal goal...and to live life to the fullest! We are asking you to support his and match their courage by joining us as we go Over the Edge!

Easterseals Michigan provides services to over 12,000 individuals in the community living with mental, physical, and behavioral health difficulties. The funds raised at Over the Edge will go directly towards our programs and services. We are striving to change the way the world defines and views disabilities by making profound, positive differences in people's lives every day.
