Easterseals Vermont is Taking Fundraising to New Heights

Fundraising can sometimes be a tall task, but on July 22, Easterseals Vermont is taking fundraising to new heights with Over the Edge - an innovative fundraising event presented by Easterseals Vermont. The event will see thrill-seeking participants rappel 11 stories down the North Barre Manor, one of Vermont’s tallest buildings. Each participant must raise a minimum of $1,000 in donations for Easterseals Vermont to be eligible to rappel.

Over the Edge Helmets

Over the Edge is a day-long event, which begins at 10am at the North Barre Manor on 455 North Main Street in Barre. Family, friends and spectators are invited to come down and support participants and enjoy a day you won’t soon forget. Event registration is now open. Register today at

The event is open to all ages. Participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a legal guardian, and all participants must be within the 100 to 300 pound required weight range (as per Over The Edge safety standards). If you have any questions about special accommodations for participants with special needs, severe health complications or allergies, and more, please reach out to Devyn Nelson, Development & Communications Coordinator,
