Special Olympics Hawaii offers a challenging adventure, Over the Edge, where people rappel down tall buildings. Watching this may remind you of groups such as Bandaloop or Legs on the Wall, however Over the Edge is a fundraiser which has been going for six years. In November 2014, they held their event at the Hyatt Regency Waikiki and you can view this at Channel808 TV.

Taking on this rappelling challenge was Dora Choy who kindly accepted our request to use her image here. Not to take away from her adventure and the admirable efforts of Special Olympics Hawaii, we fondly called this image, Flying on the Fringe.

To participate in Over the Edge fundraiser participants need to raise $1000. Ms Choy speaks very fondly of this fundraiser saying that it is such an “exhilarating experience” and that she has “had a team for this event for the last three years (as it is a) wonderful cause to support!” And what makes it even more exciting is that she and her team “always dresses up”.

Yes, there are many challenges out there. May you all take up the challenge to live your life fully whether that be in the arts or the work you are passionate about and support each other. Continue to fly on the Fringe for a good cause.
