2nd Annual Over the Edge 2018

2nd Annual Over the Edge 2018

About This Campaign

We are taking fundraising to new levels so our Little Brothers and Little Sisters can reach the height of their potential!

Join Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Cincinnati at the top of the Westin Hotel as we rappel down 17 stories. The first 92 participants to raise $1,200 each for Big Brothers Big Sisters will rappel! Why $1200? That's the cost for Big Brothers Big Sisters to make and sustain a Big and Little match for one year. Are you willing to go "Over The Edge" for a child in our community and financially support one or more of our matches?


How to go Over The Edge 

Step 1: Register for Over The Edge either as an individual or a team!
Note: For team registrations, rappelling spots available are based on funds raised – for every $1,200 raised, one participant can rappel. .

Step 2: Customize your Personal Fundraising Page
Use your Personal Fundraising Page to tell your story! Let your supporters know why you are fundraising for Over The Edge and Big Brothers Big Sisters. Are you looking for the thrill of the adventure? Are you a Big? Your personal fundraising page is your tool to reaching your fundraising goal!  Keep in mind that your supporters can donate offline as well by sending checks to the BBBS office!

Step 3: Start Fundraising
Post your fundraising page on your social media sites, email it to your friends and family, and engage everyone you know in raising money for Big Brothers Big Sisters. Remember, space is limited, so the first 92 participants to reach their $1,200 fundraising goal will be able to go "Over The Edge" in August.

Guarantee Your Spot!
If you want to guarantee your spot to go "Over The Edge", contact Cherise Duncan at duncan@bigsforkids.org and ask about our Credit Card Guarantee Form..  When you complete this form and turn it in, your spot to go "Over the Edge" is secure!

Going "Over The Edge" to support Big Brothers Big Sisters allows more matches to be made and more friendships to be built. Together, we are changing the lives of local children for the better, forever!

Campaign to Support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Cincinnati

We create life-changing friendships by matching adult mentors with Tri-State children who need positive role models.  We partner with parents and guardians, volunteers and others in the community, and hold ourselves accountable for each child in our program. Statistics show these Little Brothers and Sisters:  Have higher aspirations and greater confidence, do better in school and avoid risky behaviors.
