St. Anthony's Hospital Foundation Goes 'Over the Edge'


St. Anthony's Hospital Foundation is calling all philanthropists with a taste for adventure to join in their inaugural Over the Edge event on August 16 and 17 in downtown St. Petersburg, Florida.

St Petersburg, FL (I-Newswire) June 24, 2013 - The question is not how far you would go, but rather, how high you would go to benefit your community. St. Anthony's Hospital Foundation is calling all philanthropists with a taste for adventure to join in their inaugural Over the Edge event on August 16 and 17 in downtown St. Petersburg, Florida.

Towering at 386 feet, One Progress Plaza stands as the tallest building in St. Petersburg. Participants will be pushed to their vertical limit, rappelling down the side of this landmark tower. Along with the rappelling participants, the event is expecting support from local celebrity figures, athletes and national brands.

St. Anthony's Hospital Foundation has teamed with advertising agency, The Clear Agency, to establish a successful Over the Edge event in St. Petersburg. The Clear Agency is planning a high-profile event, attracting powerful brands to the community and gaining exposure for the St. Anthony's Hospital Foundation.

Over the Edge participants are asked to raise a minimum of $1,000 to benefit St. Anthony's Hospital Foundation - a 501 (c) 3 supporting organization. All participants must be 18 or older by the event date and weigh between 100 and 300 pounds.
