To Benefit Special Olympics Texas
Posted Date: 9/30/2014

Let's show our support for Special Olympics and send Grand Prairie City Manager Tom Hart and Assistant Police Chief Don Trask "Over the Edge."

WHO: Grand Prairie City Manager Tom Hart and Assistant Police Chief Don Trask have agreed to go "Over the Edge," rappelling down a 15-story building with other DFW-area participants on Nov. 8, 2014, if they each raise $1,000 for Special Olympics Texas.

WHY: The Over the Edge event, sponsored by Special Olympics Texas, is being conducted statewide to raise awareness and money (and your heart rate) to support more than 44,000 Special Olympics Texas athletes. DFW-area participants who reach their fundraising goals will rappel down the Bank Tower at Oak Cliff, 400 S. Zang Blvd., in Dallas, Nov. 7-8, 2014.
