Over the Edge • August 27, 2022

Date: August 27, 2022


Looking for some summer FUN? Want to cross an item off your bucket list? Up for a challenge? Well, look no further; Muskegon Rescue Mission’s exciting new rappelling event will punch your fun pass! Join us for OVER THE EDGE held on Saturday, August 27th, from the 8-story HighPoint Flats building in downtown Muskegon.

Through your participation in this fun event and by CHALLENGING HEIGHTS, you are offering the hungry and homeless an opportunity to change and reshape their future. Our shelter guests each have a story to share, some of heartache and hopelessness, others of abuse and neglect; regardless, you can have an impact in lifting them up and changing their paths. You provide them hope to rewrite their TOWERING STORIES.

Reserve your spot on the wall today to go OVER THE EDGE. Whether seeking a challenge, a thrill, or just plain fun, please know that you are supporting a very worthy cause – Muskegon Rescue Mission has been feeding the hungry and sheltering the homeless in our community since 1907. We could not do what we do without YOU.

Step out in support, step out in faith, step OVER THE EDGE!

Registration available soon!

To secure your place as a participant or to sponsor, contact Donna Joyce at or 231.727.6090.
