The Children’s Treatment Centre Foundation’s first-ever Over the Edge event is coming to Chatham-Kent Saturday, June 23rd at the Holiday Inn Express and Suites. The event will offer a fun-filled day for thrill-seekers, families, and everyone in-between.
The Children’s Treatment Centre is looking for 91 thrill-seekers to repel down the Holiday Inn, and go Over The Edge, in support of their Butterfly Building Campaign- Building, so all children, of all abilities, can reach their full potential. You can support Over The Edge by registering as an “Edger”, sponsoring an Edger, or sponsoring the event. To participate as an Edger, individuals need to raise $1,000, or $1,500 to attach a GoPro to their helmet and take home a copy of their experience. Edgers can build their own Over The Edge donation page to post, share or email to friends and family for easy fundraising.
The CTC Foundation is excited to welcome Lally Kia as an event sponsor, who will be donating a 2018 Kia Rio as a door prize for the event- meaning 1 in 91 participants will be driving home in a brand new car!
