Supporters of Give Kids the World Village (GKTW) will go “over the edge” on Feb. 8 as they rappel down the side of one of Orlando’s tallest buildings – all to support the Village’s mission of helping critically ill children and their families.

Go ‘over the edge’ for Give Kids the World!

Over 60 people have signed up for the event, now in its second year. Those brave enough to participate will rappel 428 feet down the side of the 32-story Hyatt Regency Orlando on International Drive.

Last year, the Over the Edge event raised $115,000 for Give Kids the World. To participate, rappelers – occasionally referred to as “edgers” – must raise at least $1,000.

This event is limited to 76 participants, but there are a few spots left. Among this year’s edgers are GKTW president and CEO Pam Landwirth, “Amazing Race” contestant Rachel Riley, and former wish child Olivia Nelson.
