MATT'S ACTION CAM: 'Over The Edge' Benefiting Special Olympics This Saturday!

SPOKANE, Wash. -

If you're the daredevil type, an adrenaline junkie, and like helping out others, then this Saturday we have the event for you. "Over The Edge" gives you the opportunity to rappel down the side of Spokane's tallest building, and all you have to do is raise a little money for a very worthy cause: Special Olympics Washington. Read all about it, and sign up below. But you better hurry, space is limited!

Over the Edge Spokane

Space is limited for this thrilling and inspiring way to support Special Olympics Washington. Pledge to raise $650 and rappel from the roof of a downtown sky scraper, Saturday June 22, 2013!

Over the Edge is an exclusive opportunity for individuals to take their support of Special Olympics Washington athletes to new heights by collecting pledges in exchange for stepping Over the Edge and rappelling down the Bank of America Financial building...Spokane's tallest building!

Once harnessed into the big drop, exclusive participants will solicit contributions to support their heroic fundraising adventure. Individuals interested in this once in a lifetime opportunity are required to raise a minimum of $650 in pledges for the local athletes of Special Olympics Washington. No prior experience is necessary.

Adults over the age of 18 with a desire to support a worthy cause and enough courage to step Over the Edge are welcome.

Chicken Coop

Too Chicken to step Over the Edge? Chickens can cheer from the sidelines in our "Chicken Coop." You can still raise funds, collect incentive prizes and make a difference in the countless lives of local athletes.

How does all this all work?

Anyone over 18 years of age that weights between 100-300 lbs can register for this event. There is no climbing or rappelling experience required, just enough courage to go Over the Edge! Once registered, participants are guaranteed a rappel spot as long as they reach the $650 fundraising minimum.

To raise the funds, participants are set up with their very own personal fundraising website that they use to solicit contributions for their heroic fundraising adventure from family, friends and coworkers. Only those that reach the fundraising minimum will be allowed to rappel.

Rappel times are assigned in the order that the minimum is met, so even though registering reserves you a rappel spot, the sooner you reach your minimum, the more rappel times and days you'll have to choose from! If you are confident in your fundraising or already plan to donate to yourself, you can fill out a credit card guarantee form at any time. This form secures your rappel spot and puts you in line to choose a rappel day and time. It also guarantees you'll meet the minimum or donate the difference to yourself. (Cards submitted are kept on file and not charged until June 21, 2013 with the option to continue to fundraising until July 26, 2013 for reimbursement).

Participants will have until July 26, 2013 to raise the fundraising minimum, but all participants must be at goal by June 21 in order to be assigned a rappel spot. Those not at goal by June 21, will be required to donate the difference to themselves to reach the minimum. Anyone charged on June 21 has the option to continue to raise funds until July 26, 2013 and their credit card will be reimbursed for any funds raised during that time.

Before you know it, you'll be going Over the Edge!
