Last year, I went Over The Edge for my community and rappelled 11 stories (110 feet) as Spider-Man! This year YOU decide the character!
I’ve assembled a team of 4 of my favorite superheroes to choose from. Vote by donating to United Way of the Brazos Valley through my Over The Edge fundraising page! Whichever character raises the most money for the community will be my rappel character for Over The Edge!
