All are invited to sign up for Over the Edge – an exciting fundraiser that will have participants rappelling more than 30 floors down Mohegan Sun’s Sky Tower to support Special Olympics athletes on Friday, September 1st. The event will offer views that are amazing and a feeling that’s invigorating! Guests who are interested in participating and fundraising can visit soct.org to begin their adventure. Those who prefer to keep two feet on the ground can make a donation instead. All proceeds will support Special Olympics’ year-round sports, health and fitness programs for athletes of all abilities throughout Connecticut.
This marks the 12th year Mohegan Sun will host the Over the Edge event for Special Olympics Connecticut. The event draws many of its participants – and spectators – from area businesses and corporations, community organizations and law enforcement departments. In addition, several Special Olympics athletes have committed to go Over the Edge this year and more Special Olympics athletes will be on hand to cheer on and thank those brave enough to rappel.
Over the Edge participants must raise a minimum of $1,000 to rappel and weigh 100 lbs. or more. No rappelling experience is required, as day-of training and continuous support is provided throughout the experience.
