To go over the edge is a popular expression – a type of figurative language technically known as an idiom – that we often use to describe someone who is becoming enraged.
Well, Bill Ronayne is not interested in figurative language, nor is he upset.
The owner of West Chester-based Brandywine Valley Heating & Air Conditioning will soon go over the edge, literally, as he will rappel 29 stories down Brandywine Realty Trust’s Two Commerce Square, an iconic skyscraper in Center City, Philadelphia.
It’s all part of the 2017 Philadelphia Outward Bound School Building Adventure, an annual, high-adrenaline fundraiser that reflects the school’s mission to change lives through challenge and discovery.
Ronayne will go over the edge on Oct. 20. Participants like him bravely mirror what POBS’s outdoor education programs encourage young people to do every day: challenge themselves, discover untapped potential, and use it to make positive change in the world.
Ronayne’s goal is to raise $2,000, and he needs your help. Click here to contribute and make Bill’s journey over the edge possible.
The money raised will benefit the West Chester Area School District’s Girls Leadership Program.
“I’m going over the edge on an amazing adventure for an amazing cause,” said Ronayne, a full-time businessman, part-time thrill-seeker, and volunteer firefighter for Fame Fire Company in West Chester. “I’m asking that people please consider donating to help support the school’s mission and educating future leaders right here in the West Chester area.”
