Hi, I'm Michelle Lewis, the Development and Marketing Director at the YWCA Charleston and we are raising at least $1,000 per person, for 100 people to go Over The Edge as we Rappel for a Reason - raising money to end racism. The Racial Justice Endowment Fund is halfway to reaching $1 million. When we get there, we will have funds in perpetuity to employ our Racial Justice Director. YOU can make a positive difference right now by donating to send me Over The Edge 221 feet down the BB&T Bank Building, 300 Summers Street, Charleston, on Saturday, June 22, 2019. There'll be celebrities and dignitaries and every day people just like me joining forces in the effort to end racism. Help out now by going to Become a Rappeller, or support a rappeller, like ME! 


I'm going to rappel down the BB&T Building, in exchange for donations back to the amazing local non-profit organization, YWCA Charleston.

EVENT DATE: Saturday, June 22nd, 2019     
LOCATION: BB&T Building - 
300 Summers St., Charleston,WV 

About the Event, and YWCA Charleston

YWCA Charleston's Over The Edge fundraiser is an urban rappelling experience taking place on June 22, 2019 at the downtown BB&T building. We aim to recruit 100 adventure-seeking individuals to rappel 211 feet down one of the tallest buildings in West Virginia! This event will raise funds for the YWCA Racial Justice Program Endowment, which is a continuation of our century-long commitment to social justice.

After more than 100 years serving marginalized and poor communities, our leadership recognize the need to build on this work and target our efforts upstream. Strengthening local capacity to attack the root causes of racism will positively affect people of color, while lifting up our entire community.
