Special Olympics NC Weather Statement for Over The Edge 2022
The Special Olympics North Carolina Over The Edge event scheduled for October 1, 2022, in Raleigh has been postponed due to the uncertainty of severe weather from Hurricane Ian. The new date is Saturday, December 3, 2022, at the same 150 Fayetteville Street location in Raleigh. We will contact participants about the December 3 schedule soon. There will be no need for participants to re-register for this new date.
We make this decision with great consideration of everyone’s safety because it is our top priority. We appreciate everyone’s understanding of this decision to reschedule and are grateful for the support of our building host Highwoods Properties, and the Over The Edge staff.
