“Over the Edge” For Special Olympics Nevada!

special olympics fundraiserIf you follow my blog you know I’m a fan of doing crazy stuff… especially when it comes to charity (see joggling the Disney Marathon video and / or unicycle bungee jump video).

Special Olympics Nevada does an annual fundraiser, now in it’s 3rd year, called “Over the Edge” in which sponsored participants rappel the 300+ feet down the side of a casino.  I was very excited to be asked to join in on the craziness this year.  The first two years the event was at The Rio.  This year it was at Planet Hollywood Casino, right on the Strip.

What a rush!   It was a very different kind of rush from the quick 1-minute adrenaline surge of skydiving and bungee jumping, since it takes a good 5 minutes+ to rappel down.  You need to remain calm and focused on exactly what you’re doing… can’t just close your eyes and jump!

I had a such a great time, and I can’t wait to be a part of this wonderful event again next year!  Thanks again to all my donors.
