Miami Children’s Initiative Annual ‘Over the Edge’ Fundraiser

Over the Edge Miami Party at JW Marriott MarquisFriday, September 5, 6pm-9pm – JW Marriott Marquis at 19h Floor, 255 Biscayne Blvd Way, Miami

JW Marriott Marquis Miami and the Miami Children’s Initiative hosted its third annual Over the Edge Miami, two-days rappelling event for charity. Participants rappelled 19 stories from the beautiful JW Marriott Marquis Miami, overlooking the bay and the city’s skyscrapers.

Over the Edge participants received instructions and then were strapped into their safety harness, and took off Over the Edge! Family and friends watched from the 19 floor pool deck and the faces of the people who went Over the Edge were pure joy including the bride who wore her wedding dress!

Miami Children’s Initiative charity believes in the potential of every child residing in Liberty City. The charity wants us to come together and create a prosperous Liberty City. Over the Edge believes caring and committed individuals can help ensure all children enter kindergarten ready to learn, and graduate high school ready to continue in post-secondary education well prepared for a prominent career and charity engagements in their future.

The cocktail party after the rappelling had bowling, pool tables and all sorts of kid friendly activities for the children along with dancing, eating and games for the adults. The JW Marriott and Miami Children’s Initiative hosted a great Over the Edge evening for everyone!
