You may be wondering what rappelling down a skyscraper has to do with Special Olympics, the answer is simple. If you are a person with intellectual disabilities, you encounter adversities daily. You must have courage to try something that doesn’t come easily to you. Our athletes bravely face challenges on the field, in the pool and on the court. They are the inspiration for this event. We are asking our participants to step into the shoes of our athletes. Take your support for Special Olympics Arizona to new heights and face your fears. It takes the same amount of courage to go “over the edge” as it does for individuals with intellectual disabilities to participate in sports.
