TOLEDO, Ohio – With over $200,000 raised for the first time in The Victory Center’s event history, the non-profit aims to honor those we’ve lost at the 6th Annual Over the Edge for Victory rappelling event Friday, September 9th.
Courtney Moyer is a breast cancer survivor. Last year she rappelled alongside Megan Orzechowski—this year, she’s rappelling in Megan’s honor.
Megan passed away on August 9, 2022 after a long battle with cancer at the age of 25. She shared her story for awareness and raised money for local cancer charities, including The Victory Center.
A moment of silence is planned for 5:30pm on Friday, September 9th while Courtney descends 16 stories for her friend, going Over the Edge of the ProMedica building located at 300 Madison Ave. in downtown Toledo.
It’s not all somber at the 2-day event. Thursday, September 8th features 10 VIP rappellers from 4-7pm along with ice cream from Swanky Scoops, a Plinko raffle with over $750 in prizes up for grabs, and grazing stations inside the VIP tent. Friday begins with coffee from Sweet Nates, Krispy Kreme donuts, and a community art project that has a goal of folding 1,000 paper cranes. Glovation Circus entertains from 12-4pm with a Hula Hoop busker, balloon art, and face painting. The Chick-fil-A cow mascot rappels at 2:30pm.
The Victory Center was founded in 1996 to support and educate cancer patients and those closest to them by providing programs and services aimed at meeting the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of those touched by cancer. Services are provided at no cost to patients, and all donations are fully tax deductible.
