Unleash Your Inner Superhero and Support SOTX Athletes

over the edge

Dallas Police Chief David Brown and Deputy Chief Scott Walton will unleash their inner superhero by going Over the Edge of the Bank of America Building, 400 S. Zang Boulevard, on Saturday, November 8th beginning at 10:00am.  Chief Brown is the Over the Edge Honorary Chairman, and along with local law enforcement officers, celebrities and citizens, will rappel down the 15-story bank building at the fifth annual event in support of 6,300 Special Olympics Texas athletes in the Dallas area.

Over the Edge involves participants raising a minimum of $1,000 to rappel in front of an awe-struck crowd of supporters.  Companies, organizations, schools and agencies are encouraged to “send the boss, police chief, fire chief, principal or coach” Over the Edge by raising funds from employees or members. No rappelling experience is required.  Participants should be 18 years or older by the day of the event and weigh between 110 and 300 lbs.  Rappels are scheduled between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Spots are limited, so register here to go Over the Edge!
