We are going over the edge for social and emotional cancer support!
Gilda’s Club Kentuckiana is partnering with Over The Edge to provide a unique fundraising event on May 21st and 22nd, giving you the thrilling, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of rappelling down the 18-story Hyatt Regency Louisville in an exciting and completely safe environment.
This thrilling event will help curb the rising tide of loneliness, anxiety, and distress caused by a cancer diagnosis during the COVID-19 pandemic. Proceeds will help ensure the community, social connections, coping skills, and access to individual and family therapy offered at Gilda’s Club are sustained for our 1,800 particpants.
If you are a thrill seeker or want to challenge yourself to new levels while raising funds to support those in our community living with cancer, this is an opportunity you won’t want to miss!
