Over The Edge

Why is Over the Edge important to us?

You may be wondering what rappelling down a skyscraper has to do with Special Olympics, the answer is simple. If you are a person with intellectual disabilities, you encounter adversities daily. You must have courage to try something that doesn’t come easily to you. Our athletes bravely face challenges on the field, in the pool and on the court. They are the inspiration for this event. Take your support for Special Olympics North Carolina to new heights and face your fears!

Over the Edge 2017

Special Olympics North Carolina will host Over the Edge in Raleigh on September 30 in 2017. Participants will rappel 30 stories down the Wells Fargo Capitol Center. 

In order to participate you must raise at least $1,000 by the event date.  We help make that easy and fun by providing you with a personal online fundraising webpage to collect donations from family and friends for the event! As you register you also create your personal online fundraising webpage to meet the $1,000 fundraising minimum!  For interested participants who would rather pay in full for their opportunity to rappel, return the credit card guarantee form to Leslie Moyar.

In order to go Over the Edge, you must be at least 14 years old and weigh between 100 and 300 lbs. If you do not meet these requirements and want to participate, contact Leslie Moyar.

Once you have met your fundraising goal, call Leslie Moyar at 919-719-7662, ext. 123 to schedule your rappel time for Saturday, September 30.
