About Event

Catch your breath, step up to the edge, and rappel 140 feet down the brand-new Portland Astoria Building just one block from the waterfront in downtown Portland. The first 90 people committed to raising at least $1,000 for Forward Edge programs will earn a spot to go Over The Edge. Proceeds from this event will provide desperately needed help to children and families through Forward Edge's feeding, safe water, education, housing, discipleship, and job programs in some of the world's poorest communities. 

Register here  to commit to the challenge and invest in transforming lives. No experience is necessary, and safety is our number one priority!
