Participants will rappel more than 150 feet off the historic Washington Hilton.
SOME (So Others Might Eat) is excited to take fundraising to new heights, partnering with Washington Hilton to launch Over The Edge, DC’s only urban rappelling event for a cause. The event will see more than 50 thrill-seeking participants rappel 150 feet down the façade of the historic building. Each participant who rappels will raise mission-critical funds for SOME’s lifesaving mission of fighting poverty and homelessness in our nation’s capital.
Over The Edge for SOME is a day-long event, which runs from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. at the Washington Hilton. Family, friends, spectators, and the media are invited to view and support participants.
Event registration is open. Learn more and register at SOME.org/OverTheEdge.
The event is open to all ages, with two ropes going Over The Edge side-by-side. Media opportunities, including footage and/or live shots while actively rappelling, are available during the event. Please email OverTheEdge@SOME.org to confirm attendance and opportunities ASAP.
