Over The Edge

2016 Over the Edge Highlights

More than 70 rappellers joined Girl Scouts River Valleys and our CEO, Tish Bolger, in taking the leap for leadership at Over the Edge on Thursday, June 9, 2016. Participants rappelled nine stories down the U.S. Bank building in downtown Rochester and raised money in support of Girl Scouts and the Camp Edith Mayo renovation.

River Valleys staff, volunteers, donors, and spectators came together for an all-day event at Thursdays on First and 3rd Summer Music Festival to cheer on rappellers and help Girl Scouts build the fearless leaders of tomorrow!

The event raised more than $100,000 through participant fundraising, community support, and sponsorships. All funds raised from Over the Edge will support River Valleys’ initiative to reinvest in Rochester’s Camp Edith Mayo and Program Center to better serve the growing needs of girls in central and southern Minnesota. Located in the heart of Rochester, Camp Edith Mayo and Program Center is a dedicated community space, ensuring that girls have a safe and supportive environment to embrace who they are and explore who they can become.

Thanks to support from Over the Edge, more girls have the opportunity to take risks, try new things, and become the fearless leaders of tomorrow.

Gifts can still be made in honor of the fearless leaders. You can text 91-999 with the message FEARLESS to donate to a rappeller or the ConnectZ Team. The process is simple, secure, and quick. Your continued gifts will ensure that Girl Scouts and its innumerable benefits are accessible to all girls.
