Towering Stories

Towering Stories, Saturday, April 24, 2021

Take the Challenge:  Saturday, September 25, 2021

We are looking for 75 heroes to raise a minimum of $800 for Providence Community Library's 'Towering Stories'. The valuable funds that you raise will take our services to a new level, especially in these times of Covid-19 as we continue to develop and provide new and innovative programs, services, makerspace equipment and digital resources.

Your reward is to ascend to the rooftop of Regency Plaza, step Over the Edge and rappel down the 12-story building in downtown Providence.

Get off to a lightening fast start with our Quickstart Guide to Raising $500 in 9 Days and our comprehensive Fundraising Toolkit, available soon.

Register with a Fearless Friend and lower your minimum fundraising goal to only $600! 
On the big day, we’ll schedule you together so that you rappel down the ropes side-by-side! 

Space is limited, so act now!
