ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - Saturday, August 6, the community is invited to downtown Roanoke to go “Over the Edge” to raise awareness and funds for Brisas del Mar medical clinic.

People are asked to raise $1,000 to rappel off the Roanoke Higher Education Center. Executive Director Ryan VandeLinde says this is the first year for this event, but he is excited to see people show their support.

“This Saturday we’ll all gather around 8 or 9 a.m. We’ll have live music, Debs Lemonade, we’re gonna have free popcorn for the whole community, and games for the children. It’s gonna be a whole day event, while many people will be rappelling off this building; we’ll be standing by cheering them on.”
