Over the Edge for Special Olympics

Posted: October 8, 2010 in Uncategorized

Today is finally the day that I go Over the Edge for Special Olympics Nevada. I get to rappel down 51 stories of the outside of the Rio hotel casino and resort in downtown Las Vegas because of the power of Twitter. With less than 1000 followers, we raised over $1000 in just four days to meet our goal. Incredible. I know other folks on twitter with over 40,000 followers who could not raise that much, that fast. So not only did we accomplish our goal in record time, but our followers and friends through RTs and contributions came through in record pace, far and above what others were able to do. That blew me away. Thank you all for the support to a great cause.

One thing I promised everyone who helped me out was a small token of my appreciation with an F-15 gift from my work. I have those and they are ready to ship, I just need a few mailing addresses from all those who helped.

If you contributed money to Special Olympics, please email me at: shotgun15e@gmail.com

Include your full name, twitter username, and mailing address and I will get those in the mail to you asap. It’s the least I can do to show how much I appreciate everything you guys did in such rapid fashion to make this event for us a success.

So now off to the event, in just a few hours I’ll be rappeling off a 51 story building in the middle of Vegas!!!!! Did I mention I’VE NEVER DONE THIS BEFORE!

Last note, one of my sponsors challenged me to walk up the 51 flight of stairs as well as rappel down the outside. Deal’s a deal ! Stand by on twitter to watch me. (good thing there is an after party!)
