Duke Children’s Hospital hosted the first Over the Edge for Duke Children’s event at 21c Museum Hotel in October. Fifty-five participants rappelled down the side of the building, including many Duke Children’s physicians, nurses, caretakers and patient parents. Participants had to raise at least $1,000 for Duke Children’s for the opportunity to rappel. Between individual participant fundraising and sponsorship contributions, more than $105,000 has been raised for Duke Children’s. Donations are still being accepted.
