Past Events


Over 90 individuals and 24 teams (with the backing of hundreds of supporters) raised funds for the chance to rappel down the side of the Marriott in Uptown Normal, Illinois.

Over the Edge "Fundraisers" who raised over $1,000 got the chance to go over the edge and be #FearlessforKids.  This event raised over $68,000 for the Child Protection Network and Boys and Girls Club of Bloomington-Normal.
