About The Event

REGISTRATION TO OUR 2019 OVER THE EDGE EVENT IS NOW OPEN!

Join us this year as we rappel over Bridgewater Place, right on the river in beautiful downtown Grand Rapids On Saturday, September 21, 2019.

A whole new experience as we rappel down the side of the glass towers.

If you were on the edge about joining us the past few years, we encourage you to join us this year.  For our past participants, Bridgewater Towers will be a exciting and new experience.

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!  No rappelling or climbing experience is required.  The Over The Edge staff is a team of experts possessing an outstanding safety record who will provide the technical expertise, training and equipment needed for the event.

Check out our 2018 OTE photos.

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.  Proceeds from our Over The Edge event will support programs and services in West Michigan.
