Over the Edge Event at EQT Plaza
Good morning, everyone! We're off to a rainy start to the weekend here in Pittsburgh. Fortunately, the rain held off yesterday, so I was able to get a few cool shots from around the city. This morning's photos come to you from another Over the Edge rooftop rappelling event held at EQT Plaza yesterday. I was at the office going about my daily routine and I kept hearing cheers and other things coming from street-level. As I looked out the window, I could see folks set up to rappel down the side of EQT Plaza. So, I grabbed my camera and headed down to see what the event was all about.
The event gave participants the opportunity to rappel 21 stories down EQT Plaza in downtown Pittsburgh and raise awareness for Our Clubhouse, a non-profit that provides free emotional and social support to those in our region touched by cancer. Each participant needed to raise a minimum of $1,500 which will fund cancer support programs. According to their press release, this was their 2nd annual event.
Our Clubhouse "...provides free cancer support for those living with cancer at any age, as well as the family and friends who care for them. We are a community of support for everyone currently living with or affected by cancer - men, women, teens, and children - along with their family and friends." For more information about Our Clubhouse, please visit their web site, www.ourclubhouse.org or call (412) 338-1919.
