When: October 5, 2022 starting at 10
Who: We’re looking for “Edgers” of all ages and abilities – all you need is enough bravery to take that first step “Over the Edge” for a great cause.
What: Get ready to catch your breath, step up to the edge and rappel 10 stories down the Embassy Suites Charlotte Uptown. Food trucks will arrive at 10:15 a.m.
Why: The funds raised will go toward the NASCAR Hall of Fame Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization whose mission includes providing economically disadvantaged students (pre-K through 12th grade) access to learning opportunities that harness our sport’s longstanding tradition of winning through innovation. The Foundation works to ensure those students have a competitive edge that best equips them for life and drives their future success. Every $20 donation brings a child into the NASCAR Hall of Fame for a once-in-a-lifetime learning experience.
