Join us as we go Over The Edge of The Queensbury Hotel in Downtown Glens Falls on June 17, 2017!!
Over The Edge is a unique fundraising event that allows participants an opportunity to raise money for the Tri-County United Way and rappel down the side of an iconic building in the heart of Glens Falls. All funds raised will be distributed to the charities that we support. These non-profit agencies, located in Warren, Washington and northern Saratoga counties, deliver critical human services to local residents. By partnering with Over the Edge and Tri-County United Way, you are helping us to inspire hope, improve lives and create opportunities in the Tri-County region.
