Who can go Over the Edge with CEED?
Edgers must be at least 14 years old and weigh between 100 and 300 lbs. No experience necessary!
Once you’ve met your fundraising goal of $1,000 or more, we’ll contact you to schedule your rappel time for Saturday, October 27, 2018.
Is Over the Edge safe?
Yes, absolutely! Over the Edge has never had a single incident or accident since their inception in 2003. Every event is set up as an industrial worksite and is compliant with all federal and state OSHA Fall Protection Standards and OSHA Federal and State laws. Their policies and procedures adhere to the best practices identified by IRATA (Industrial Rope Access Trade Association) counsel — a strict regulatory body that has regimented guidelines and safety protocols that far exceed the OSHA, Workers Compensation, and state labor codes.
Will I be trained?
Certified team members train you on the equipment, ensure the gear fits properly, and attach you to the rope. You’re always in radio communication with a rope technician and as you approach the bottom, a team member will help with your landing.
How long will it take to complete the rappel?
Depending on your desired speed, rappelling takes 10-15 minutes to reach the ground. You’ll be in constant radio contact with our rope technicians during your rappel. We encourage you to go slow and take in the whole experience.
