Over the Edge
Over the Edge, co-sponsored by TD Bank, Brandywine Realty Trust and New Castle County Fire Service, is a unique fundraising event -- and the first of its kind in the Tri-State area -- allowing colleagues or friends the opportunity to raise money and "send" yourself or a friend, or a boss or colleague, rappelling 17 stories (222 feet) "Over the Edge" of a building to raise money and awareness for Special Olympics Delaware.
For the third straight year, we are streaming the event live on the Internet so anyone anywhere in the world can watch YOU Go Over the Edge.
