GILBERT OFFICER GOES OVER THE EDGE

 A Gilbert Police Officer took part in Over the Edge, a fundraiser for Special Olympics on Dec. 7, 2019. This event took place at Cityscape, the fourth tallest building in Phoenix.

By rappelling down a 500-foot-tall building, Dani Covey helped raise a total of $7,000 for Special Olympics Arizona. Covey is a public affairs officer with the Gilbert Police Department.

This fundraiser helps sponsor athletes of Special Olympics. Participants take part in this Special Olympics fundraiser every year.

Rappelling down a 500-foot building was scary, according to Covey, but with some encouragement from the Gilbert Police Department, she felt very brave.

When it comes to Special Olympics, fundraisers like Over the Edge make it possible for athletes to take part in many different events.
