Going over the edge

Urban rapelling event in Wilmington raises money for Special Olympics Delaware.
 Dozens of people go “over the edge” of a 17-story building in Wilmington throughout the day, raising thousands for the Special Olympics.  To rappel down the side of the Bradywine Realty Trust building at 300 Delaware Avenue, participants had to raise a minimum of $1,000.  Special Olympics officials say nearly 100 have signed up.
