Be an Edger for Children First, Inc.
Saturday, March 18th
Children First Edgers raise $1000 from friends, family, and the community for the exciting opportunity to rappel down a building – All for a great cause!
Edgers raise money through an easy-to-use online system, starting with an $85 registration donation. Each Edger raises a minimum of $1000 to go Over the Edge (though the sky’s the limit – you can certainly raise more). Then, we all come together on Saturday, March 18th to cheer on all the Edgers as they rappel from the top of a local Athens building.
Can we count on you?
