(Manchester, NH) – Today, Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02) and Congressman Chris Pappas (NH-01) rappelled down Manchester’s Brady Sullivan Tower as part of United Way’s Over the Edge event in support of New Hampshire communities.  

“United Way serves families across New Hampshire to make our communities stronger and healthier,” said Rep. Kuster. “What a thrill! I could not have chosen a better partner to go over the edge with than my friend, Congressman Pappas. I look forward to our continued work together to support hardworking Granite State families.” 

“With more than 22,000 donors and volunteers across New Hampshire, United Way does incredible work supporting causes that strengthen Granite State communities,” said Congressman Pappas. “I am so glad that Congresswoman Kuster and I had the opportunity to show our support for United Way by going over the edge and living to tell about it!”
