More about EDGERS

Folks will FACE THEIR FEARS SO OUR COMMUNITY’S MOST VULNERABLE DON’T HAVE TO. They’ll rappel off the roof of the Oxford to raise funds for our community. There’s still time to sign up to volunteer at the event or to go OVER THE EDGE & rappel off the Oxford! At 7 stories and 70 feet, it’s the tallest building in Central Oregon!
