Partnering with Over The Edge Global, the Alzheimer’s Alliance Tri-State Area and its

Over The Edge has raised over $70 Million with non-profit partners through its signature
fundraising rappelling events with partners predominately in Canada, the United States, and in the United Kingdom. Over The Edge has hosted over 700 successful rappelling events in the past 9 years.

The event will help raise much needed funds to provide resources, services and education for those affected with Alzheimer’s and other related dementias. The Alzheimer’s Alliance also provides OUR PLACE DAY RESPITE CENTER – a program designed to provide much needed rest and relief for caregivers of persons with Alzheimer’s and related dementias. It also provides socialization for those diagnosed with the disease. By offering this service it affords caregivers the freedom to focus on stress relief through rest and relaxation and time for important personal endeavors that are often neglected.

Alzheimer’s is a devastating disease that impacts the lives of over 17,000 families in our service area. The mission of the Alzheimer’s Alliance Tri-State is to empower those affected by Alzheimer’s and other related dementias with resources for enhancing their quality of life through education and support.

“We are excited to be partnering with Over The Edge Global for this exciting event to raise
much needed funds for the Alzheimer’s Alliance and Our Place Day Respite Center. By going over the edge, we hope to empower participants to help those with this devastating disease”.
