July 7, 2016


If you’re adventurous enough — or certifiable enough — to rappel off the 12-story Medico-Dental Building, the folks at Ten Space and Community Hospice have just the event for you.

Community Hospice Foundation hopes people will go to great heights to support its cause – and then go back down, by rappelling the side of a 12-story building.

The Modesto-based nonprofit has opened registration for Over the Edge, an Oct. 28-29 event with a goal of raising $150,000 for Community Hospice.

Individuals and teams – “edgers,” as organizers are calling them – are asked to raise a minimum amount of money in exchange for the opportunity to rappel the Medico Dental Tower on Sutter Avenue near the Stockton waterfront.
