2016 Over the Edge – Special Olympics

Over the Edge - Special OlympicsJoin us for the hottest and most charitable rooftop adventure yet – Over the Edge! Daring participants who raise at least $1000 will have the chance to rappel 25 floors – 400 feet – from the top of the SunTrust Center in downtown Richmond Oct. 15.

And this year, rappelling is better together! Teams of five or more will receive their own athlete coach to help inspire and guide them through the Over the Edge experience. Our athlete coaches are part of the Special Olympics Global Messenger program. Coaches will motivate and encourage their team members to reach their fundraising goals and to feel cherished for their efforts.

Over the Edge - Special OlympicsWe’ll start the season with a Meet the Coach event August 31, during which coaches and team members can mingle and participate in team-building activities. Athlete coaches will continue to challenge their teammates to work harder each week in order to reach and surpass the teams’ fundraising goals.

The Over the Edge Team Experience is an amazing opportunity for athlete coaches and participants to work towards a common goal. The extreme nature of Over the Edge requires passion and determination that is built on teamwork. The collaboration between athlete coaches and team members will have a lasting impact on every team member.

Here are a couple of videos of participants on why the event is special to them:


We promise you’ll feel like you’ve scored before your feet even hit the ground.
