Over the edge of Tuscaloosa’s tallest building

Over the Edge raises money for Youth for Christ in Tuscaloosa.

Teams of two as well as individuals on Saturday rappelled down the face of Tuscaloosa’s tallest building, The Tower, to raise money for the Youth for Christ organization. The building is on the corner of University Bouelvard and Greensboro Avenue.

To earn the privilege of going down the side of the 140 foot tall building, each person had to raise at least $1,000. The money will be designated to provide Christian mentors for teens.

The Over the Edge organization is a special events company that partners with various charities around the country to help with their fundraising efforts. The Youth for Christ group was hoping to raise more than $30,000 in this, the second year of the event.
