HONOLULU – Calling all thrill seekers! Don’t miss your chance to be one of less than 100 individuals participating in the 11th annual “Over the Edge” fundraiser benefiting Special Olympics Hawaii.
This year’s event will take place Saturday, Oct. 26, at the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa, where participants have the unique opportunity to rappel more than 400 feet down the side of the hotel and experience truly breathtaking views of Waikiki and Diamond Head. Interested participants are strongly encouraged to sign up today at www.sohawaii.org.
“Over the Edge is such a creative way to show support for an organization that encourages and empowers athletes with intellectual disabilities,” said Irby Morvant, Jr., General Manager of Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa. “We are thrilled to welcome back this annual fundraiser to the Hyatt Regency Waikiki as it not only showcases the beauty of Waikiki, but also benefits such a deserving organization.”
The registration fee is $100 per participant. All participants are asked to raise a minimum of $1,000 in donations, must be 18 years of age by the day of the event, and weigh less than 300 pounds.
All participants will receive a special 2019 Over the Edge T-shirt. Additional prizes will be available to those who raise more than the $1,000 minimum. Monies raised through Over the Edge remain in Hawaii and support local athletes across the state. Since 2009, Over the Edge has raised more than $1,306,950 for Special Olympics Hawaii athletes and programs.
“Over the Edge is a one-of-a-kind event and one that our team and supporters look forward to each year,” said Tracey Bender, Special Olympics Hawaii director of development. “We are excited to bring our supporters another exceptional experience unlike anything they’ve done before, all while supporting our amazing athletes.”
