Are you a thrill seeker?
Think you can rappel 400 feet down the side of a building?
Then we want you to come with us!
We are partnering with Over the Edge to give you a chance to go over the edge of the Suntrust Center with Christa, owner of Richmondmom.com!
All you need to do is leave a comment below telling us why you’d like to rappel 25 stories in an effort to raise money for the Special Olympics.
Keep it short and sweet or tell us a great story about why the Special Olympics is important to you… the winner will be chosen at random on October 10 and will rappel with Christa at the Over the Edge event October 17 & 18. (Richmondmom rappel date is the 17th.)
