Success With Honor, Centre County United Way bring community together at Over The Edge

On Friday, Penn State football student-athletes had the pleasure of attending Over The Edge, an event hosted by the Centre County United Way. The event, hosted at Beaver Stadium, began at 10am and lasted through the late-afternoon hours as repellers came over the south end of the stadium. All funds raised through the event went to the organization’s mission of ensuring all Centre County residents have access to the essentials.

The first 107 people to reach the $1,500 fundraising minimum were selected to repel off . Among the 107 people to go over the edge of Beaver Stadium, the most notable rappeler was George Etzweiler, who rappelled 110 feet from the south side of the country’s second-largest stadium at the age of 103.

“We are excited about this event because this event allows us to raise funds to help our neighbors and that’s what it’s all about,” Paula Williams, executive director for Centre County United Way, said.

Nittany Lions in attendance included Tony Rojas, Sander Sahaydak, Riley Thompson, Olu Fashanu, Khalil Dinkins, J’ven Williams, Ta’Mere Robinson, Kaleb Artis, Zane Durant, Jerry Cross, KeAndre Lambert-Smith, Tyler Duzansky, Golden Israel-Achumba, Anthony Donkoh, Omari Evans, Kaden Saunders, Dani Dennis-Sutton, Daequan Hardy, Johnny Dixon and Harrison Wallace. 

“It’s all about building community and the more people we have, the more that folks get to interact with our football players and understand how committed they are to being part of the community. It helps us and it helps the whole community,” Williams said.
