This summer, you'll have an opportunity to rappel down an eight-story building in downtown Flint to help people with disabilities. (Or, if you're like me, you'll stay planted firmly on the ground and help by making a monetary contribution.)

For the third year in a row, 'Over the Edge' is coming to Flint and partnering with The Disability Network of Flint and Genesee County. Participants go to the top of the Durant Building in Flint and rappel down the edge of the building in order to raise money for The Disability Network.

The Disability Network helps remove barriers for people who have disabilities.

This year's event is a little different, as it coincides with Flint's annual Back to the Bricks Celebration on August 21. Participants will have a birdseye view of classic cars as they rappel down the side of the luxury apartment building in downtown Flint.

Anyone who wants to participate in the event will need to raise $500 in contributions by August 13, according to Mlive. That's down from a minimum donation threshold of $1,000 in previous years.

Joel Feick from The Disability Network will join Clay and Lisa Marie next week on Cars 108 to discuss the annual event.

Take a look at the video below of The Disability Network's first visit to Flint in 2018.

Anyone who wants to participate in this year's event can call 810.742.1800 or visit this website for more information.
