Join us for our most exciting volunteer opportunity yet - helping folks go Over the Edge for Gilda's!

We are partnering with Over The Edge to provide a unique fundraising event on November 20th, giving people the thrilling, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of rappelling down the 18-story Hyatt Regency Louisville in an exciting and completely safe environment.

This event will help curb the rising tide of loneliness, anxiety, and distress caused by a cancer diagnosis during the COVID-19 pandemic. Proceeds will help ensure the community, social connections, coping skills, and access to individual and family therapy offered at Gilda’s Club are sustained for our 1,800 particpants.

We need LOTS of volunteer support to make this happen. Please reach out to get the SignUpGenius link with available shifts. Thank you!
