Come hang Over the Edge with us and take the challenge!
What is over the edge
Over The Edge with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Sacramento and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northern Sierra is a once in a lifetime opportunity to do something fun while raising important dollars in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters’ one-to-one mentoring program.
Participants who achieve a minimum fundraising goal of $1,000 will have the opportunity to Go Over The Edge of the Marriott Residence Inn Sacramento at Capitol, a 16 story building located in downtown Sacramento.
Rappelling will take place on Saturday, August 7th, 2021. Our video and media day will be on Friday, August 6th, 2021.
Become an Edger: Individuals interested in going Over the Edge register and set a minimum goal of raising $1,000. The registration includes a $25 deposit that is applied to your $1,000 goal minimum. Registration secures your spot in the lineup and gives you access to the fundraising platform and support provided by Big Brothers Big Sisters to achieve your fundraising goal.
1) a fundraising tool kit
2) personal fundraising webpage to share your story and collect donations
3) two gathering events that will educate and inspire you to exceed your goal
4) direct access to BBBGreaterSac and BBBSNS staff and committee members to assist you in your efforts
Become a Fearless Leader Team: In addition to individual “Edgers”, there is an opportunity for area businesses and organizations to get in on the fun by becoming a sponsor and a Fearless Leader! Our “Fearless Leaders” program engages area employers, organizations and groups of individuals who want to send multiple individuals “over the edge”. Fearless Leader Teams agree to raise a minimum of $2,000 for the first edger and $750 for each additional edger. The team sets the strategy for achieving the goal AND selecting the representative. BBBS provides great resources to help you plan and execute your strategy, including custom fundraising pages, workplace and employee engagement and donation strategies and much more.
The BBBS Over The Edge committee will be working to secure sponsorships and incentive prizes to encourage both “Edgers” and “Fearless Leader Teams” to raise as much as possible!
When you support Big Brothers Big Sisters, you change lives for children in our community.
