Over The Edge, Saturday, May 18, 2019

Over The Edge is Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwest Virginia's annual fundraiser where people from the community rappel down one of the tallest buildings the Roanoke Valley -- The Higher Education Center.  Over The Edge has raised nearly $400,000 since it's beginning in 2014. Because of Over The Edge, more Bigs (volunteer adults) and Littles (children) can be paired up in a match, more friendships can be created and improved outlooks on life can be started.
