Volunteer for Over the Edge

United Way of Dubuque Area Tri-States is excited to again be hosting our Over the Edge Event happening on Friday September 15, 2023. Community members will be rappelling off the MidWestOne Bank building downtown on Main St. in Dubuque. We need lots of volunteers to help this event run smoothly as it helps us raise over $100,000 for people in need across the tri-states. There are two different opportunities, event volunteers and ropes volunteers. Below is information about each opportunity and how you can sign up to help United Way with this fun and exhilarating event.


Event Volunteers

There are three shifts. You can sign up for as many as you want. There are different roles to be filled; check in table, edger guide, taking pictures, and even a spot on the roof top. You also get a free United Way Volunteer t-shirt!

Volunteers will help edgers gear up, be on the rooftop to help them go over, or be on the groud assiting when edgers land. Perks of this opportunity is a free t-shirt, free lunch & snacks, and an opportunity to rappel during training (but only if you want!).
