About the Event

What is Over The Edge
Over The Edge is an urban rappelling experience that benefits the great work of Youth For Christ in Tuscaloosa. On April 2nd, 2022 Tuscaloosa citizens and community leaders with absolutely no experience will rappel from The Tower at 2330 University Blvd. 

How you can rappel
The first 75 fundraisers that raise a minimum of $1,000 will earn a spot to go Over the Edge for Tuscaloosa teenagers. Why $1,000? Because that's the cost to provide 60 teenagers Christ-sharing mentors for a month. Register today.

Please note that your $100 registration fee does count towards your goal. These events do sell out so be sure to sign up early. 

Why are we doing this
Youth for Christ exists for teenagers far from God. 
We pursue middle school and high school aged teens who feel overlooked to build relationships at pivotal moments. We look for the student who sits alone in the cafeteria.  We hold the hand of a pregnant teenager worried about becoming a mom.  But we can’t do it alone, we need partners who will join us in our mission.  We need your help to serve even more students in 2022.

THE TOWER at 2330 University Blvd Tuscaloosa


Well first of all you! We are looking for those who want to take part in an extraordinary event that will impact the lives of our youth. And there are only two requirements. You must weigh between 100 and 300 lbs and raise a minimum of $1,000. That's right. You can be any age. And no rappelling  experience is necessary. 

Also the "who" is Youth For Christ. Youth for Christ is a Christian youth ministry with the mission of reaching un-churched high school and middle school students with the gospel of Jesus Christ. We were involved in ministering to over 2,500 youth this past year. We engage each teen in a Christ-sharing relationship with the intent of connecting them to a local church.
