IMG 6429The United Way of Cumberland County will be holding their Over the Edge Fundraising event again this April in downtown Fayetteville.

On Saturday, April 13, those who have helped with this fundraising endeavour will be rappelling down the side off the Cape Fear Valley Medical Arts Center. This is the second year the United Way of Cumberland County has held the event.

UWCC is hoping to raise $100,000 from the event to help improve the quality of Cumberland County residents. People can register for the event as an individual or as a team. Individuals are tasked with raising a minimum of $1000 while teams are asked to raise $2500 to go "over the edge."

To register for the event, or to make a donation, visit Use the code OTE25 to get $25 off your registration fee. This code expires on March 1.

The United Way of Cumberland County was established in 1939, and helps non profits in the Cumberland County area with donations. In 2023, UWCC chose 14 non profit organizations to help fund throughout the year. The Over the Edge Fundraiser is an innovative way to get the community involved in a large scale fundraising event that will benefit the entire community.

Over the Edge will be happening on April 13 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information about UWCC and who they help, visit
