2011-08-22 · By Editor
To raise funds for Special Olympics Southern California (SOSC) , thrill-seekers can have the exclusive opportunity to rappel down the Hyatt Regency Long Beach on October 29th. Those who raise a minimum of $1,000 from pledges will descend 16 floors – the entire length of the hotel.
The event will be supervised by trained rappelling professionals from “Over the Edge,” and will feature a spirited assortment of food, prizes, and Halloween themed festivities, including an “Edger” costume contest, certain restrictions apply.
Over the Edge will enable SOSC to continue its mission of empowerment through sports training and competition. Proceeds from “Over the Edge” will benefit thousands of individuals with intellectual disabilities in Southern California, impacting Special Olympics athletes from as far north as Bakersfield and San Luis Obispo, down to San Diego. The goal is to raise at least $150,000.
To sign-up, get involved or sponsor an SOSC athlete visit www.sosc.org/overtheedge. A limited number of rappelling spots are available, so those interested in becoming an “Edger” are encouraged to register early. All participants must raise the minimum $1,000 in pledges by September 30th. “Edgers” cannot exceed 300 pounds and must be in good health.
