Big Brothers Big Sisters of Atlantic and Cape May Counties takes fundraising to new heights with Over the Edge, a unique fundraising event that offers participants the exhilarating opportunity of rappelling down a 15-story building. Scheduled for Saturday, September 24th at the Sheraton Atlantic City Convention Center Hotel in Atlantic City, Over the Edge allows participants to rappel over 175 feet in a completely safe environment.

“We chose Over the Edge as one of our main fundraisers for the year because it has such tremendous potential to raise both funds and awareness for our mission,” said Eric Reich, President of the Board of Directors of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Atlantic and Cape May Counties. “With dozens of participants rappelling down the side of one of Atlantic City’s landmark buildings, Over the Edge is bound to attract attention to Big Brothers Big Sisters, and to the city itself.”

Big Brothers Big Sisters also has the support of Corporate Chair, Michael Cohan of New Vistas Corporation. Cohan has hosted a Big Brothers Big Sisters Mini-Golf Fundraiser for the last 13 years, and has supported the organization personally as a former board member.

Participant registration will be limited to the first 90 participants who raise $1,000 or more for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Atlantic and Cape May Counties. Registration for rappellers is available at, and there is no experience or prior training needed in order to register. The Over the Edge staff consists of a team of experts who possess an outstanding safety record, and who provide the technical expertise, training and equipment needed for the event.
