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!
