Would you go Over the Edge for someone you love?
After having to take a year off in 2020, the 6th Annual Over the Edge Knox will be returning to Downtown Knoxville on Saturday August 21, 2021 - an exciting, high adrenaline Rappelling experience unlike any other, and it ncludes a fun Block Party at street level!
This year we will be rappelling 16 STORIES down the side of the beautiful historical Trotter/First Century Bank Building in Downtown Knoxville located at 625 Market Street - adjacent to Krutch Park and Market Square - hosting the most thrilling fundraiser event to ever hit Knoxville, and we want YOU to join us!
Why Over the Edge:
Every day, single-mothers selflessly face pressures that would push most of us Over the Edge. Time and time again, they courageously face these challenges head on in order to provide for their children.
In response to their strength, bravery and dedication, The Restoration House asks: Would you go Over the Edge for someone you love? And will you go Over the Edge for the mother-led families of The Restoration House?!
About The Restoration House
At its core, The Restoration House (TRH) believes that God intended for us to live in community. Over the past 13 years, The Restoration House has seen single mother families become "rooted" in community as they seek wholeness. Families like Jessica's, Lydia's, and Chasity's, who have experienced tremendous restoration through their time at TRH. You can view their stories to the right.
100% of the funds raised from Over the Edge will go directly to help us daily walk alongside the single-mother families living at The Village and impact their journeys.
