~Drew Brees, QB New Orleans Saints

Over the Edge is FRIDAY!

Over the Edge will take place this Friday in New Orleans at Benson Tower!    We have many participants who come back year after year.  Read below what Mr. John Charlet had to say about his experience with Over the Edge!  You can register here.

Why NOW, Why EVER? Why would a 71 (and a half) year old want to repel 25 OTE 2014 Official Flyerstories and then ride a helicopter to go train with the Jefferson Parish Sherriff’s SWAT Team?

 WELL, first, it is REALLY fun!  Second, it is for a great cause. Third, I get bored easily, so always looking for something to do. Fourth, great views from the building and from the Helicopter ride.

All that said, I’ve always encouraged my five children (2 boys, 3 girls) to set their own limits on what they want to do and can achieve. We all love the outdoors and have all at one time or another done some repelling in the mountains. NOTHING this high, so it seemed a chance to get a new perspective. Did it last year, so was all new. This time, I expect to relax and enjoy the ride in a more leisurely fashion. Unfortunately, the repel guides won’t let me go head first to make this one different.

 Last year, and this, my Daughter Aimey (the good or evil twin, depending on which twin you ask) will be along side of me on the repel down. Last year, I did win the race down, but to be fair, she had trouble with the gear. Come out to watch this year’s race (not that we are a competitive family!)

 Do come out and support this very worthwhile cause and watch the “Old Guy” glide slowly down the side of the Benson Tower without even a walker to help!
