Over the Edge Brings Fundraising to New Heights


SPRINGFIELD, Mo- The Child Advocacy Center will be hosting another Over the Edge Fundraiser this summer.

“This is a very unique and fun event. it’s our largest fundraiser of the year,” says Lisa Langley of the Child Advocacy Center. 

They will be rappelling down Sky 11 in downtown Springfield. 

 “And last year we served 1,596 children, we ask people to raise 1,000 to repel Sky 11, and it cost 1,000 to serve a child at the center.”

“Children come to us fearful of what has happened to them, overcoming a fear of heights is great and 100 percent of what you raise goes directly to the children,” says Lisa  

As of right now, they have about 90 spots left. And if you can’t handle the heights, there are other things to do on the ground like a 5K and fun run, slow roll, Festival on the Edge.
