Over the Edge

Go Over the Edge!

Be a part of Howard County’s HIGHEST event ever and go Over The Edge for Special Olympics Maryland – Howard County. Rappellers will descend 12 stories of the highest building in Howard County: 6100 Merriweather. All funds raised support Special Olympics Maryland – Howard County:  the county’s largest year-round organization devoted to sports training and competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. 

No prior rappelling experience is required. A professional team will be there to train and assist you the entire time.  If you want to face your fears, click here to register and start your fundraising.

Not interested in rappelling?  You can still help by making a donation to support the rappellers.  Click here to donate.  

Rise up as a leader in the local business community by being a CORPORATE SPONSOR which will help finance the cost of the event, ensuring that every dollar raised goes to support the 900 Howard County athletes with intellectual and developmental disabilities who participate free-of-charge in the over 20 sports programs offered by Special Olympics Howard County. For more information on becoming a sponsor, contact Cole Schnorf (CSchnorf@Manekin.com).
