Over The Edge For Kids Sake 2019

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Over the Edge for Kids’ Sake! Big Brothers Big Sisters is excited to be hosting this amazing fundraiser for a 2nd year in Davenport, Iowa, on August 23-24 to raise important dollars for youth mentoring in the QCA.  These dates are also the same as the Alternating Currents event in downtown Davenport, which means there will be a lot to see and do in the area (for more details, go to www.alternatingcurrentsqc.com).

Over the course of two days, there are a number of volunteer roles available to support, welcome and oversee various components while nearly 90 people show their courage and rappel 11 stories down the Hotel Blackhawk (200 E. 3rd Street).  Below is an outline of various opportunities available, ranging from registration, staging, escorts, announcers, and hospitality. Please sign up below for a timeframe that works best for you then if your plans should change, return to this site to update your availability.

WANT TO BE A ROPE VOLUNTEER? There are limited spots (with opportunity for a FREE rappel) to serve as rope volunteers and work with Over the Edge's technical staff on event days. Although individuals with experience working with rope is preferred, such as climbers, cavers, firefighters and SWAT, becoming a rope volunteer is open to anyone with enthusiastic and safety conscious mindsets.  Training will be provided on Friday, August 23 from 1-4 p.m.

To become a rope volunteer, you MUST sign up directly with OTE at...https://overtheedgeglobal.com/volunteers/.
