For the third time, CHARISM brought Over the Edge to Fargo.

The event of the summer took place August 8, 2019. An exclusive group of 100 participants had the opportunity to rappel 110 feet down the side of the Black Building on Broadway, thanks to our building sponsor the Kilbourne Group.

To go Over the Edge with CHARISM, participants pledged a fundraising goal to secure a rope and received the thrilling rappelling opportunity. On event day, with the help of trained and certified rappelling experts from Over the Edge USA, participants spent the most adrenaline packed (but completely safe) time rappelling down the Black Building. Family and friends came out to cheer on their edger as they took their descent.


Over the Edge was an exciting, thrilling, face your fears, or bucket list experience. Participant provided at risk children in Fargo with opportunities. 100% of the funds raised at CHARISM OVER THE EDGE benefited CHARISM's out of school time programming.

We have all experienced challenges in our lives, together we conquered this challenge and changed the story for our neighbors. Changing the story for at risk children by allowing them access to educational after school programs, to attend enriching summer camps, and to connect with caring mentors.
