RICHMOND, Va - Rick Jeffrey, President of Special Olympics Virginia, and Traci LaGanke, parent of a Special Olympics athlete, invite you to take fundraising to the extreme by participating in the “Over The Edge” extreme fundraiser. Not for the faint of heart, participants who raise a minimum of $1,000 will find themselves rappelling 25 stories down the side of the SunTrust Center to benefit Special Olympics Virginia. Traci herself rappelled in 2013 and will be repeating the feat this year. The event will take place on October 17th and 18th at SunTrust Center in downtown Richmond. Channel 6’s own Jake Burns will be rappelling on our media day on October 17th. For more information visit www.specialolympicsva.org.
