Shelley Christensen - Omaha Over the Edge

6.23.17 Hello Friends, I've decided to try to help raise funds for Youth For Christ by participating in their Omaha Over The Edge event. I will rappel 230 feet down the Highline Apartment Building downtown. Would you consider sponsoring me at $.10 a foot?

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 $230,000 to help the youth of Omaha!

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