Over the Edge

Over the Edge provides signature urban rappelling events as fundraisers for non-profits across the globe, raising in excess of $100,000,000 since 2008. On September 30, 2023 their team of experts will return to Milwaukee to conduct a rappelling event down the 10-story, 147-ft tall Wintrust Commercial Bank Building located at 731 N Jackson Street to help the MACC Fund raise money for the fight childhood cancer and blood disorders!

For the third year, the MACC Fund will celebrate Childhood Cancer and Sickle Cell Awareness Month by going Over the EDGE!  Safety is, of course, everyone’s top priority.  All OTE events have highly trained industrial rope specialists, all of which are IRATA or SPRAT certified.  Every OTE site is set up as an industrial work site, with compliance to all OSHA laws and SPRAT governing procedures.  Each event site has a comprehensive Site Inspection & Safety Plan completed, and if every potential risk cannot be mitigated, the site will not be deemed suitable for use.  To date, there have been over 55,000 unique rappelers who have participated in OTE events and there has been one hospitalization for an allergic reaction to a bee sting!

The 2023 OTE event to benefit the MACC Fund will raise critical dollars for research!  Even if you are unable to rappel and fundraise, there are plenty of other ways to help through volunteering or sponsorship!
