Over the Edge Raises $17,845 for Special Olympics Hawaii!

Media Release:

Thanks to an overwhelming turnout of participants and the generosity of the Hawai’i community, this year Special Olympics Hawai’i’s Holiday Classic will indeed take place December 5 – 6, allowing hundreds of local athletes to compete in the sports that they love.

Congratulations to the Tesoro Rescue Team who successfully raised $17,845 for Special Olympics Hawaii!

This year’s Over the Edge of Waikīkī event allowed 120 participants to rappel 31 stories – or more than 315 feet – down the edge of the Sheraton Waikīkī on November 13.


The event was filled to capacity – in fact the response was so great that SOHI added another rappelling line in order to accommodate an additional 40 more participants. Additionally, the event set a record, raising the most funds for a first-time, one-day event of any Over the Edge event, nationwide.


Plans are already in the works for next year’s event! If you are interested in participating or sponsoring next year’s Over the Edge please contact Kyle Karioka at (808) 943-8808 ext. 33 or kylek@specialolympicshawaii.org.
