When: October 28, 2023
Where: M&T Bank
New England Headquarters
850 Main Street, Bridgeport, CT 06604
Over The Edge, presented by M&T Bank, raises both funds and awareness for Wakeman Boys
& Girls Club’s enriching programs, while offering supporters an exciting and once-in-a-lifetime experience. Want to get involved?! Rappelers each commit to a personal goal of raising $1,000 for Wakeman Boys & Girls Club to reserve their spot on a rope to rappel down the side of the 248-foot-high M&T Bank Headquarters. Participants have represented many different groups: youth members and their families, longtime friends and supporters, sponsors, and pure thrill seekers. It will be a fun day of cheering on our friends, community, games, food, music, and more. Rappelers show off their bravery- and their support for Wakeman Boys & Girls Club!
Wakeman Boys & Girls Club has offered a safe space, mentorship, and a sense of belonging to every young person that walks through our doors. We have been fulfilling our mission to guide and inspire young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, and responsible people for 110 years. Since 1913, Wakeman Boys & Girls Club has grown and evolved to meet the needs of our community. We now have 3 Clubhouses and 2 school sites across Bridgeport and Fairfield and serve more than 3500 children and teens annually.
Support of Over The Edge and Wakeman Boys & Girls Club ensures that our programs remain
affordable to all families and we never have to turn a child away due to inability to pay. We
would love for you to join us as a rappeler, sponsor, volunteer, or help as a cheerleader! If you
cannot attend, but want to support this year’s event, please consider contributing to a rappeler’s campaign! For more information, to sign up, or to donate please CLICK HERE.
