Over the Edge is a unique fundraising event -- and the only one of its kind in Delaware -- 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 fourth straight year, we are streaming the event live on the Internet so anyone anywhere in the world can watch YOU Go Over the Edge.

The first edger usually "goes over" at 9 a.m. and then it's a constant flow of participants until approximately 5 p.m.
