Catch your breath, step up to the edge and rappel The Queensbury Hotel in the center of Downtown Glens Falls in support of the Tri-County United Way. The first 90 fundraisers to raise a minimum $1,000 will earn a spot to go Over the Edge and $1,500 will earn you a spot plus the use of a GoPro camera. With your help, funds raised will be distributed to local non-profit agencies that provide critical human services. By partnering with OTE and TCUW, you are helping to inspire hope, improve lives and create opportunities in the Tri-County region.
