Geaux Over the Edge

Uptown Campus
Benson Tower

Support Special Olympics Louisiana and register for your chance to rappel down 26 stories of the Benson Tower in downtown New Orleans. Space is limited for this thrilling and inspiring way to support Special Olympics and spots are reserved on a first come first serve basis once a fundraising minimum of $1,200 has been met. All funds must be turned in by event day. No prior ropes experience is necessary. 


To raise the funds, participants are set up with their very own personal fundraising website that they use to solicit contributions for their heroic fundraising adventure from family, friends, and coworkers. Only those that reach the fundraising minimum will be allowed to rappel. Anyone that has not reached the minimum goal of $1,200 per person will be responsible for the remaining amount before rappelling.


Date & Time:

Friday, December 6, 2019 | 6 AM- 3 PM


No prior experience needed! Professional and experienced Over the Edge staff members will teach you everything for a safe and amazing rappelling experience.


Inclement Weather Policy:
Please note that in the case of event cancellation due to inclement weather, no refund will be provided.


Fundraising Policy:
If the $1,200 entry fee is not met, the funds are considered a direct donation to Special Olympics Louisiana with no refunds being provided.
