Over the Edge Comes to Raleigh
Over the Edge Raleigh is here! Despite the rainy weather, close to 140 local daredevils are rappelling down the Wells Fargo Capitol Center in downtown Raleigh today. Adjustments have been made due to the windy conditions as Special Olympics NC and Over the Edge staff keep a close eye on the weather to ensure that all participants have the best and safest experience possible.
We are already looking forward to Over the Edge Charlotte which has a new date and location! For the first time ever, Over the Edge will take place November 14 at the Hyatt House Charlotte Center City. Registration for Over the Edge Charlotte is now open!
