You did it! You went OVER the EDGE!
It was beautiful weather for the Media/VIP day, where 7 "edgers" experienced adrenaline and pure thrill as they descended 289 feet down the Four Seasons Hotel at Lumiere Place. Two more rappellers were able to complete their descent on event day before it was canceled due to wind and lightning. Participants were given the option to travel to Jefferson City and rappel 13 stories down the Jefferson State Office Building on Oct. 20. A total of 40 people took us up on the offer and got to witness one of the best views in Jefferson City on a beautiful fall day as they felt the rush of rappelling. For those who were unable to make the trip to Jefferson City, we can still waive your $50 registration fee for the 2013 event; email us to be put on a list for this. We are also tentatively planning a party at Climb So iLL in the spring to kick off the 2013 season. All 2012 participants will receive free admission.
Total Edgers: 7 on Media/VIP day, 2 on event day, 40 in Jefferson City
Total Raised: $150,430
Top Fundraiser: Gracson Morris, $20,630 (second year in a row!)
I have more donations to turn in.
Great! You can still encourage your supporters to make donations to your personal fundraising page - log in here. If you have offline donations, please mail them to: Special Olympics Over the Edge, 2945 S Brentwood, St. Louis, MO 63144.
I still want to donate.
Online donations will be open for several weeks after the event. You can search for a participant and make a donation here.
Approximately two weeks after your rappel, you will receive an email from Stacy Jones, Over the Edge Manager for Special Olympics Missouri. The email will provide you with your private redemption code to use to redeem your prize. Two weeks will allow for extra time to turn in any checks or cash that still needs to be added to your fundraising total, so if you REALLY wanted that Kindle Fire or iPad 2, there is still time! Please pay close attention to the expiration date on the email to redeem your prize. Or, if you’d prefer to forego your prize and make an even bigger impact on SOMO athletes, email us.
