Michael and Olympia Moving & Storage were participating in Special Olympics Massachusetts’ Over the Edge event. This unique fundraising event gives participants who raise at least $1,000 the chance to rappel down the Hyatt Regency in downtown Boston.
This is Special Olympics Massachusetts’ third annual Over the Edge event, and the first Over the Edge event for Olympia Moving & Storage.
Olympia asked for contributions from friends, family, business partners, and fellow Wheaton | Bekins agents. We shattered our goal of $3,000 and raised a total of $4,390 for Special Olympics athletes and programs!
Michael was a bit apprehensive about going Over the Edge. “I have a fear of heights, so it took some convincing to commit me to Over the Edge. Seeing everyone pitch in for Special Olympics motivated me. The toughest part was letting go of the safety rail at the top of the building, but after that, it was actually fun. Thank you so much to all our contributors, I wouldn’t have done this rappel for a cause any less worthy than Special Olympics Massachusetts!”
Olympia Moving & Storage is a proud corporate partner for Special Olympics Massachusetts. We contribute year-round to the organization with in-kind donations of crews & trucks for events, corporate fundraising, employee volunteerism, and more.
