Catch your breath, and step up to the edge, for CYC's FIRST ever Over The Edge urban rappelling event on Saturday, June 26th 2021!

The first 100+ fundraisers to raise a minimum of $1,000 will rappel 200 feet down a building in the heart of beautiful downtown Chicago. Under the guidance of trained abseiling professionals, rappelers can conquer their fears or get their thrills while ensuring a once in a lifetime photo worthy experience — all for an exceptional cause.

This signature, socially distant, fundraiser enables CYC to continue delivering its transformative early learning and enrichment programs for youth living in Chicago’s divested communities.

About CYC: For 64 years, Chicago Youth Centers (CYC) has been the place Where Possibility Lives: a trusted partner in Chicago’s most divested neighborhoods, ensuring that kids have a safe place they can go to explore, to discover, to process, and ultimately to envision a bright future that they can create for themselves.
