WHY GO OVER THE EDGE?
20 stories, 2 great organizations.
United Way of Buffalo & Erie County and John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital have come together to improve health equity for babies, children and mothers in our region. But our work is only possible because of the community that supports us.
That's where you come in. We are challenging our community to step up, face their fears and go over the edge to support programs, research and direct care that provide building blocks for a healthy future.
Your support allows United Way of Buffalo & Erie County to invest in programs and initiatives that offer preventative care and health education for children and mothers and John R.
