Organizers planning for 2015 Over the Edge fundraiser

Posted: Updated:
Just days after the ropes and all the gear are gone Big Brothers Big Sisters is looking to next year's "Over the Edge" event.

Friday and Saturday, nearly 60 people rappelled the Patrick Henry Building to raise money for the non-profit.

Organizers say they fell about $10,000 short of their $90,000 goal, but over all they were extremely pleased with the response from the community.

Organizers hope to have a date for next year's event by the end of this week.

Goals for next year include having more rappellers take the leap.

If you are interested in rappelling next year contact Jessica Scaggs at 540-345-9604.
