Paradise Valley Community Members Scale Building for Special Olympics

Twelve Paradise Valley community members recently scaled down the side of a 27-story office building in support of Arizona’s 16,000 Special Olympics athletes.

According to the Paradise Valley Independent, community members gathered Saturday, Dec. 9 to rappel down the 385-foot CityScape building in downtown Phoenix to raise money for local Special Olympics athletes.

The mix of community members included a former mayor, police officers, and a school teacher.

“I believe in the Special Olympics Arizona program,” Police Chief Peter Wingert told the publication.“This is a great organization where over 95 percent of the funds raised go right back into the programs for the Special Olympic athletes.”
