Thank you for visiting K2's Special Olympics fundraising page, a place to support the Special Olympics organization and help realize their goals. Since 2006 K2 has been supporting and working with Special Olympics Washington in their attempt to create a world where people with intellectual disabilities are accepted, respected and given the chance to become productive citizens.
A few months ago the Special Olympics Washington staff approach K2's President with a unique, adrenaline inspired fundraising opportunity that seemed to be a natural fit for the brand. What they pitched was Over the Edge, an event that rewards the top fundraisers the opportunity to rappel down a skyscraper without getting arrested. This sounded too good to be true, but that is exactly what this fundraising event is all about and another reason why K2 jumped at the opportunity to sponsor the event.
K2 is proud to be the title sponsor of the Over the Edge for Special Olympics event, right here in our own backyard. This is the inaugural Over The Edge event in downtown Seattle and it is being held at the famous 514', 41 story Rainier Tower. The building is a Seattle landmark famous for it's narrow base which looks like it's been gnawed away by a giant beaver. The event takes place on August 13 and 14th and with no snow on the ground in North America, we figured this would be a good way for one K2 athlete and staff to get a vertical adrenaline rush during the summer months while at the same time contributing to a good cause.
Going Over the Edge for K2:
