All Kinds of News for September 12, 2018
Many of Alpine Academy’s students had the unique opportunity to rappel off an office building in Utah County’s famed “Silicon Slopes”. This was done as part of a fundraising opportunity with Workfront and Over the Edge.
Alpine’s parent company, the Utah Youth Village, is one of the oldest nonprofit organizations in Utah, serving children and families from around the state in a variety of settings. As a 501(c)(3) organization, Utah Youth Village relies greatly on donations to provide these wonderful services to the underprivileged. The amazing team at Workfront (a tech company based in Lehi, UT) partnered with Utah Youth Village and Over the Edge (a fundraising company) to host this event and allowed Alpine Academy and Utah Youth Village students and employees to go “over the edge” of Workfront's 5 story office building.
It was a wonderful opportunity for many Alpine Academy students to conquer their fear and overcome the anxiety-provoking thought of staring over the side of a building and then taking the plunge. Alpine Academy is extremely grateful to all those that made this event such a success.
