On Friday November 2nd, I was able to take part in media day for the Over the Edge fundraiser for the Special Olympics. Repelling down a 31 story building in Waikiki isn’t something that you get to do on a normal basis, so I jumped at the opportunity to do it… literally.
After some training and overcoming my slight fear of heights… I made the jump over the side and repelled down the Sheraton Waikiki. And contrary to what I thought prior to the event, it really was not all that bad.
In the end it was a great time bringing awareness to a fantastic cause not only here locally, but throughout the nation. These gifted athletes are very inspiring to watch in action, and this was just one small way we in the media could help bring attention to this wonderful organization.
