‘Over The Edge Charlotte’ Return October 6, 2023
The NASCAR Hall of Fame Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization, announced the return of the fifth annual “Over the Edge Charlotte” fundraising event, set to take place Friday, October 6, 2023. Rappelling 10 stories down the Embassy Suites Charlotte Uptown, participants will be raising funds to support the Foundation’s mission to provide children most in need of all ages with access to educational opportunities.
The Foundation work includes ensuring students have a competitive edge to equip them for life and future success. Every $20 donation brings one child into the NASCAR Hall of Fame for innovative learning experiences. In 2022, the NASCAR Hall of Fame’s Education programming served more than 11,000 students and the Foundation provided nearly 1,500 students with scholarships, thanks in large part to the incredible support for the Over The Edge Charlotte event.
To rappel down the building, prospective participants are required to raise $1,000 leading up to the event. The first two rappelers for the day have been confirmed as Tim Miner and Matt Olin, co-founders of Charlotte Is Creative. In addition, NASCAR Cup Series driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. will join the event as a rappeler this year.
