Help launch their 2023 Campaign with its most thrilling fundraiser to date. Rappel down the St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation building, one of the tallest buildings in Cornwall, to raise money to tackle poverty in our community.
In partnership with Over The Edge, St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation and YourTV Cornwall, the United Way is bringing urban rappelling to Cornwall for the first time to support our local communities.
Enjoy an amazing view of downtown Cornwall from the rooftop before rappelling 9 stories down the side of the building in this experience of a lifetime. Does this sound crazy? We hope so! But it's also safe. Over The Edge has hosted more than 1300 events across North America. Safety is their #1 priority. They are certified rope access specialists who can guide you Over The Edge, so there is no experience necessary.
