McALLEN - Be one of the seventy-five brave souls who will get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to rappel down the side of the tallest building in the Rio Grande Valley, the Chase Tower. 

Boys & Girls Clubs of Edinburg, McAllen and Pharr are organizing the March 25, 2017 "Over the Edge Experience" to raise funds to provide summer camp to 7,500 youth and teens.  Summer Camps at Boys & Girls Clubs focus on academic success, health and lifestyles, and character and civic engagement. 

This unique event will allow people to rappel down the 17-story Chase Tower with the assistance of a professional ropes team. This certified ropes professional team will be in charge of keeping participants safe and have overseen more than 100 similar events over the past eight years with no injuries.

The Over the Edge Experience will also include music, food trucks, and entertainment from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.  There will be something for the whole family. We invite all to come cheer on the participants and enjoy the fun.

Participants will be asked to raise a minimum of $1,250 to $2,500 by March 18 to benefit Boys & Girls Clubs Summer Camp. Along with a major sense of accomplishment, they'll take home a souvenir t-shirt, bumper sticker and attendance at the Liquid Courage party hosted by Peppers’ at Uptown.
