The Alzheimer's Alliance Tri-State Area has opened registration for people who want to participate in its Over the Edge fundraiser scheduled for Sept. 14.

Participants will rappel off a 60-foot building at Texas A&M University-Texarkana.

Proceeds will benefit the programs of the Alzheimer's Alliance including its Our Place Day Respite Center. The center provides respite care for families that have loved ones with Alzheimer's or dementia, which allows the caregiver a day of rest.

Every $50 donated will cover one person's day of care at the center.

Anyone that has registered to go Over the Edge by noon Monday will be entered in a drawing for a $40 Twisted Fork gift card.

For people who are scared of heights, a $100 donation to the Alzheimer's Alliance will allow them to join the flock in the Golden Chicken Coop, where they can watch participants.

Sponsorship and volunteer opportunities are available.

For more information, call the Alzheimer's Alliance at 903-223-8021.
