Take your support for Special Olympics Louisiana to NEW HEIGHTS!
Why is This Challenge Important to Us?
You may be wondering what rappelling down a skyscraper has to do
with Special Olympics, the answer is simple. If you are a person with
intellectual disabilities, you encounter adversities daily. You must have
courage to try something that doesn’t come easily to you. Our athletes bravely
face challenges on the field, in the pool and on the court. They are the
inspiration for this event. We are asking our participants to step into the
shoes of our athletes. Take your support for Special Olympics Louisiana to new
heights and face your fears. It takes the same amount of courage to go “over
the edge” as it does for individuals with intellectual disabilities to
participate in sports.
