About Event

Due to circumstances related to COVID-19, this event has been POSTPONED UNTIL MAY 22, 2021.

Wakeman Boys & Girls Club will once again go Over The Edge and ask our supporters to raise funds in exchange for the opportunity to rappel down the People's United Bank Corporate Headquarters in Bridgeport. The first 75 individuals who raise a minimum of $1000 will secure one of the limited spots on our ropes on event day. Register HERE to commit to the challenge of the rappel and support our cause at the same time! 

Like everything else these days, OTE will look a little different due to COVID-19 protocol. Click HERE to learn more about the safety precautions and changes to the usual format.

What did you want to be when you grew up?  
At Wakeman Boys & Girls Club, we genuinely believe that every child has the potential to BE GREAT. When you support WBGC, you are providing a positive place for kids to grow into caring, responsible citizens. In fact, you can be confident that each dollar you raise offers hope, opportunity, and a sense of belonging to every youngster who walks through our doors. By fostering an environment that builds self-esteem and encourages self-expression, our members are given the freedom to explore every aspect of the exciting world that awaits them. But we can’t do it without you!

Please consider participating in this unique opportunity to go Over The Edge for Wakeman Boys & Girls Club!
