Hi Family and Friends! 

I am taking fundraising to new heights (230 ft to be exact!) so our partner Omaha Youth for Christ students can reach the height of their potential! I first became aware of this inspiring organization through my employer Supportworks and instantly was drawn to the work they are doing all over Omaha. I sincerely appreciate your support for this amazing non-profit and my goal. You can donate now by hitting “Give Now” on the upper right.You can give with any major credit card and it only takes 30 seconds! If you would like to support by check, please add my name and Over the Edge to the memo line of your check and mail to:

Greater Omaha Youth for Christ

Omaha, NE 68137

Thank you for joining me and my journey over the edge!


The most unique fundraising event is coming to Omaha! Courage is necessary as this experience will challenge you to take your support to new heights. This urban adventure fundraising event gives you a chance to rappel 230 feet down the Highline Apartment Building (22nd & Dodge) in downtown Omaha.


Youth for Christ works with local students to build relationships through weekly clubs, creative programs and caring adults; to help them make good choices and positively impact their schools. Currently in 40 schools, YFC works with 2,000 students each week. Your donation will go directly to helping kids - funding programs and growing into new schools.

Our goal is to raise $250,000 to help the youth of Omaha!

Registrants must raise a minimum of $1,000 to rappel.
