More information:

YWCA Charleston's Over The Edge fundraiser is an urban rappelling experience taking place on June 18, 2022 at the downtown Truist building. We aim to recruit 75 adventure-seeking individuals to rappel 211 feet down one of the tallest buildings in West Virginia! This event will raise funds for the YWCA Racial Justice Endowment Campaign, which is a continuation of our century-long commitment to social justice.


After more than 100 years serving marginalized and poor communities, our leadership recognize the need to build on this work and target our efforts upstream. Strengthening local capacity to attack the root causes of racism will positively affect people of color, while lifting up our entire community.

We invite you to join us. Make your pledge to go Over The Edge, and make a difference within your community.

SIGN UP NOW, or make a donation!
