Special Olympics Hawaii held their annual event Over The Edge, a fundraiser for their athlete program. Each entrant must raise a minimum $1000 that will fund a single athletes sports program for one year.
This year I returned to sponsor this great cause and rappelled 40 stories down The Hyatt Regency Hotel in Waikiki. Last I set the record at 300 ft and by becoming the first and only chair user to do such a feat in Hawaii. This year I was able to break that record by adding an additional 100 ft.
And if that wasnt enough, rather than landing on an open area like everyone else we came in sideways through a balcony to avoid hoofing it up a few flights of narrow scaffolding stairs. Extreme all the way!
I’d like to thank all who supported me in this beautiful event. It was a great success! Aloha – Damon
Great talking with the guys at Purpose 2 Play. Check out their site for more amazing action sports features. Mahalo for the cool article.
