17 Stories High and 'Over the Edge'

Seventy-six people (yes – 76’ers) rappelled down the side of the 300 Delaware Avenue Building in Wilmington on May 8th to raise money for Special Olympics Delaware. Each participant had to line up sponsors, and the urban mountaineers together raised more than $117,000 for the non-profit. This was their fourth Over the Edge event in Delaware, and many participants descended the downtown office building for the second, third and fourth time. “Their commitment to this event from the beginning has been overwhelming,” said Ann Grunert, executive director of Special Olympics Delaware.
