Jessica Goes “Over the Edge” – Rappelling with a GoPro

November 1st, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments


Over the Edge was created to be a fundraiser for the Special Olympics of North Carolina. Participants that raised at least $1,000 rappelled 32 stories off the Wells Fargo Building on Fayetteville Street in downtown Raleigh on October 6th, 2012. After bugging friends for donations and selling stuff through eBay and Yard Sales, I managed to raise $1,011 for the Special Olympics of NC.

I thought this made a great addition to my 101 things before you die list.

As you can tell from the video, it took a bit of work to feed the rope through, at least for the first 10 stories. It took longer than I expected and my hands and arms got pretty tired, but I had a blast! I would totally do it again (if I could do it without fundraising – I really hate asking people for money).

Sorry for that clicking noise throughout; I’m not sure if it’s the camera shaking or what.

Thanks to Clayton Fitness for sponsoring me!

    Good job. I just found your blog while doing a search for Upper Gauley rafting that I’ll be doing Saturday. And that led to this post that is just a day old, uncanny. Again, good job.
