Coloradoans Go \u2018Over the Edge\u2019 In The Fight Against Cancer
More than 130 people rappelled down the side of a 30-story building in downtown Denver on July 8 and 9 in the third annual “Over the Edge” event fundraiser benefitting the Cancer League of Colorado. 

In exchange for raising at least $1,000 in pledges for the Cancer League of Colorado, participants were given the opportunity of dropping 367 feet down the side of a building located at 1600 Glenarm Place. 

Colorado Avalanche mascot Bernie was among the participants and took his turn rappelling down the side of the building. 

“This was my second year going ‘Over the Edge’ and without the leadership, drive and determination from Cancer League President Gary Reece I would not have participated in a second year,” said Cancer League of Colorado’s Young Support Group representative Quinn Washington.  “I am terrified of heights but raising money for cancer research makes it worthwhile.”

The event raised approximately $180,000 last year, with 100% of the proceeds benefitting cancer research and patient-related services in Colorado.
