KNOXVILLE (WATE) – Over the Edge is part fundraiser, part thrill ride that supports a non-profit organization for single mothers in the area.
On Saturday participants will have an opportunity to rappel down 12 stories of the Langley Building in downtown Knoxville, while raising money for the Restoration House.
Slots are available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The Restoration House was founded in 2007 and provides supportive transitional housing and Ally Teams to help bridge the gap between existing services for low-income single mothers and their children while helping them break the cycle of poverty and giving them an opportunity to restore life’s four key relationships through a personalized, guided plan.
In order to help more families, TRH is developing The Village – a 24-unit community for low-income single mother families. The Village provides TRH, Emerald Youth Foundation, and A Hand Up for Women the opportunity to strategically partner together.
Phase I of The Village is currently under construction and will open in mid-June 2015. 100% of the funds raised from Over the Edge will go toward the Phase II construction of The Village.
