THE STORY:

Go Over the Edge to Raise Money for Kids Across Houston!
 

Slip into a harness, put on a helmet, grab a rope and take a flying leap off a 10 story West Houston building in front of cheering crowds.  It’s the rappel of a lifetime!

Grace School is hosting the event to benefit three worthy causes that provide assistance to kids across our area.  Proceeds will go to the Grace School tuition assistance fund, Grace School STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) curriculum training and Child Advocates, which provides support for abused and neglected children removed from their homes and placed in foster care.

  • What if you could check off another item from your bucket list?
  • What if you could show off in front of friends and family? 
  • What if you could do all this and help raise money for kids across Houston?

GRACE SCHOOL has teamed up with Over the Edge to put on one of the coolest signature events Houston has ever seen. After you take in the gorgeous panoramic views of the city from the top of Westchase Park Plaza located at 11490 Westheimer, a team of Over the Edge experts will assist you in rappelling down the side of the 10 story building. You'll land to the cheers and applause of the gathering crowd and have quite a story to tell your grandkids! And it's all for a great cause.
