Helping out and spending time with the people from the Special Olympics is fantastic all on its own….but add rappelling off a downtown city building with the kids from Special Olympics, now you have a perfect day! One of the most exciting and brave things I’ve ever done in my life! Once you’ve taken that step ‘Over the Edge’, it’s hard not to feel like a Super Hero!

Special Olympics Texas is offering an unforgettable event that stands high above the rest. Over the Edge is geared toward the fearless or those looking to overcome their fears. Go Over the Edge in Dallas or Houston to raise funds (and your heart rate) to support more than 55,232 athletes. Individual participants who raise a minimum of $1,200 will have the unforgettable experience of rappelling down a high-rise building.
