Over the Edge 2016

BB Brian LB Nick

Pictured above, Big Brother Brian and Little Brother Nick rappel down 100 King Street West on September 28, 2016. The duo has been matched for 9 years. To date, this is their most adventurous outing yet!

26 storeys, 338 feet ... we did it again!

We took fundraising to new heights ... literally! On September 28th, 42 brave individuals rappelled down Hamilton's tallest commercial building to support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Hamilton and Burlington. Located in the heart of Downtown Hamilton, the rappel site (100 King Street West) stands 26 storeys or 338 feet tall. In total, the event raised $60,000 for local mentoring programs.

Thank you to our event participants, supporters and event sponsors for helping to keep mentoring strong and alive in our community!
