|I, myself didn't really go over|
the edge... but, I did make a
donation in support of Devorah
and The Victory Center
The Victory Center, whomever registered and raised over $1000 in donations had the opportunity to rappel down from The Edison Building in downtown Toledo, OH.
An amazing over $150,000 was raised from
this event benefiting the services that The Victory Center provides to cancer patients.
On September 8, 2017, Myself and a few other supporters of The Victory Center gathered at downtown to cheer on our breast cancer support group facilitator Devorah, as she went "Over the Edge" of the Edison Building in honor of all of us cancer survivors and to those that we cherish in memory. Devorah had personally raised over $2500 for this fundraiser. So grateful for people like Devorah for making an impact in the lives of cancer patients and survivors.
Devorah, in her own words: "I have decided to add a spiritual component to this event. I will read the names of loved ones whose lives have been touched by cancer as I descend the 16 stories. You are welcome to give me several names to add to this list. The purpose of doing this is to validate the lives of these individuals, and to honor them for going through their cancer journey and fighting to live one day at a time."
