Hattie Larlham and special events company Over the Edge are giving thrill-seekers the opportunity to rappel for a cause. Now in its second year, Over the Edge for Hattie Larlham gives fundraisers the opportunity to rappel 22 stories down the building at One Cascade Plaza in downtown Akron, Ohio. Participants who raise at least $1500 will go over the edge on Saturday, August 29, 2015. All funds raised through Over the Edge for Hattie Larlham benefit children and adults with developmental disabilities. Learn more about Hattie Larlham by visiting our website, www.hattielarlham.org.

Over the Edge is a special events company that provides signature events for non-profit organizations. The company requires every rappelling site to complete a comprehensive site inspection and safety plan. Over the Edge employs IRATA or SPRAT-certified industrial rope specialists to train and prepare participants the day of the event.
