JA is Going Over The Edge

Over The













Over the Edge is an exciting urban adventure fundraiser that challenges you to take your support for Junior Achievement to new heights.  Donors that raise $1,000 benefiting JA will be assigned a personal time slot to rappel.

Each rappeller, also called  “Edger” will rappel from the 19th floor to the 4th floor of the Marriott Rivercenter Hotel.     Edgers do not need to have any special skills or training prior to their rappelling experience.

Highly trained industrial rope specialists (SPRAT or IRATA certified) will walk each rappeller through the technical aspect and prepare them for their unique experience!

Join us in impacting tomorrow's leaders through our once in a lifetime Over the Edge experience.

Toss Your Boss



is your


Has your boss ever pushed you over the edge? Well now’s your chance to return the favor! Rally your co-workers to “Toss your Boss - Over the Edge” of the Marriot Rivercenter Hotel for the thrill of a lifetime. Your fearless leader may not seem so fearless when it comes to rappelling down 19 stories!

When your organization raises at least $1,000, you can send your boss, coach, teacher or team leader ‘Over The Edge’. But, beware! If your leader matches organization contributions, they can choose SOMEONE ELSE to go over for them! Companies and organizations that raise over $2,500 are eligible for the benefits of corporate sponsorship.
