Over the Edge for RMHC-EIWI
September 14th, 2018
When faced with a child’s illness life stops overnight and parents enter a world of fear and worry. RMHC-EIWI steps in to help support families so there focus can be on their child. Having a place to rest, a place to shower, or a place to do laundry are things we often take for granted until they are not there.
On September 14th, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois will host the 2nd annual “OVER THE EDGE for RMHC-EIWI”. Participants will be rappelling down the 13 story Plaza Towers onto the Ped Mall in Iowa City. We have only 92 rappelling spots between 9 am to 5 pm open so sign up soon to start raising your $1,000.
Will you join us in supporting these families by facing one of the most common fears- the fear of heights?

Raising money is easy. Here are a few tips on fundraising from Over the Edge:
- Ask! Don’t be shy. Friends, family and coworkers will feed off your enthusiasm.
- Find Building Floor Sponsors: divide the number of floors in your building into your minimum amount raised. For example, $1,000/5 floors, $200 pledge per floor.
- Challenge a coworker – have a peer in another department go Over the Edge with you and see who can raise the most money.
