EmPower goes Over the Edge for Charity
On Saturday June 11th, 2011, members of the EmPower team, participated in an event held by the National Foundation for Human Potential called, “Over the Edge for Charity”. The experience was inspiring and rewarding for all involved. Participating individuals were asked to raise funds for the organization by going ‘Over the Edge’,and repelling down the 12-story, H. Lee Dennison building in Hauppauge,New York.
Going ‘Over The Edge’ was easy for some, but not for others. Some team members had their concerns but overcame their anxieties as they left their worries on the roof and made their descent from 120 feet in the air.
The mission of the National Foundation for Human Potential is to promote, develop and encourage educational and support services for children and adults with different abilities through financial and other means of support. To meet that purpose, the Foundation raises funds and provides contributions and grant awards to organizations, which build communities.
EmPower is proud to support the National Foundation for Human Potential. We aim to align ourselves with organizations whose principles are similar to what we call The EmPowering Way.
