Special Olympics Texas is offering two unforgettable events that stands high above the rest. Over the Edge is geared toward the fearless or those looking to overcome their fears by rappelling down a 15 story building in Dallas or a 20 story hotel in Houston. Raise funds (and your heart rate) to support over 58,000 Special Olympics athletes. Get your family, friends or co-workers together and send someone you know Over the Edge twice for Special Olympics Texas.

Individual participants who raise $2,200 have the incredible experience of rappelling in both cities. Dual-City rappellers receive all the benefits of a Superhero Rappeller, plus one night hotel stay in the city of your choice on the eve or day of the event.
