OHEL Xtreme! Presents OVER THE EDGE event on Monday August 31, 2015 at the Heritage Capital Group building in Newark, New Jersey! OHEL Xtreme! gives participants the opportunity for an Xtreme Challenge to rappel down a 20 story building (about 245 ft.) in a completely safe and controlled environment.  
At OHEL, we serve individuals that struggle every day with different life challenges. From extreme circumstances (crises) to day-to-day challenges, OHEL is there to support our community. OHEL Xtreme! is your chance to do something Xtreme! (not like all those people who run marathons...kidding!), to attain impressive bragging rights (Hey, see that building over there? Yeah, I rappelled down it.), to check something off your bucket list (if it's not on your list, it should be). OHEL Xtreme! will have an Xtreme impact on the lives of the children and adults with disabilities.

With the help of trained and certified rappelling experts, you will spend the most adrenaline packed (but completely safe) 20 minutes of your life rappelling down the side of the Heritage Capital Group building in Newark, New Jersey, overlooking the skyline of Manhattan.  As an OHEL Xtreme! Edger, you can expect:
  • Safety, safety, safety.
  • A fantastic view! Heart-pounding descent
  • Event shirt & goody bag
  • Private practice rappel.
  • Custom Online Fundraising page and sample language for email, facebook and tweets.
  • A heart-pounding descent.
  • Tremendous celebration! Great BBQ, food and refreshments
  • Family Viewing Area
How to Participate
To secure a rope, each participant is required to raise a minimum of $1,000 for the opportunity to participate in OHEL Xtreme! There are only 88 slots available, and they go to the first people who register. You must weigh between 100 and 300 pounds.

Don’t let your fear of heights stop you from being part of this amazing event! Whether you would like to join a team your friends or co-workers have created, registering as a “Chicken” allows you to fundraise and support the event without having to go over the edge. While this registration type does not have a fundraising minimum, we will provide you with your own personal fundraising page.  And any “chicken” that raises at least $180 will receive an official “I was too chicken to do OHEL Xtreme!” event t-shirt.
