In Partnership with the Southern Weekend

Get Ready to Rappel for a Cause

The Alzheimers Alliance and Over the Edge are teaming up to rappel for a cause. The event is happening on September 14th at Texas A&M University-Texarkana. Those participating will get a chance to face their fears off of a 60 foot wall. Those who want to participate must raise a minimum of $1,000 before September 1st. Go above and beyond $1,000 and receive a chance to win a Balmer Genuine Crocodile Leather Watch or a Yeti cooler.

The cost to register is just $75.00, the money raised by going Over the Edge goes toward a good cause.  The good cause is the fight against Alzheimer’s disease, the donation goes to the Alzheimer’s Alliance. All proceeds will be distributed to Alzheimer’s Alliance and Our Place Day Respite Center.

The Alzheimer’s Alliance helps more than 15,000 people across 22 counties, who are impacted by Alzheimer’s Disease through support services, referrals and Our Place Day Respite Center.

The Our Place Day Respite Day Center provides caregiving services to families. They offer socialization, cognitive stimulation and provide an overall engaging environment for those staying at the center.
