Over The Edge

October 18, 2023 at Vertis Green Hills

Over The Edge is a unique fundraising event where attendees rappel down a building for a good cause. More than 1,000 Over The Edge events have been held in North America since 2008, and on October 18th they’ll be coming to Nashville in support of Habitat for Humanity Williamson-Maury!

Rappel for a Reason

We’re calling all thrill-seekers and adrenaline junkies to face their fears and go Over the Edge in support of our mission. Every individual who raises a minimum of $1,000 will have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to rappel down the side of Vertis Green Hills. Every dollar raised will help us fund the materials needed to build affordable housing for families in our community.

Space is limited and rappel spots are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Are there weight restrictions?
