Results of OVER THE EDGE fundraising rappel for Special Olympics New Mexico

Posted on October 7, 2009 at 4:25pm 0 Comments

I am pleased to report that Special Olympics New Mexico met its financial goal for this first-ever dramatic and appealing rappelling fundraiser.



Over the Edge grossed $63,775 -- quite wonderful for a first-time event in an uncertain economy - that SONM had only three months to prepare for. The net was $35,000 -- just where they wanted to be.



I myself raised just under $2,500 from more than 80 contributors.



Would I do it again?



Certainly I'm proud that… Continue

I did it!

This afternoon, I completed my OVER THE EDGE rappel for Special Olympics NM at the NM Bank & Trust Building, 320 SW Gold. It took about 15 minutes or so.



Turned out that the building is 16 stories high, not 14 as I originally thought !



I needed a lot of extra preparation to keep myself calm, including visualization and deep breathing -- which I did at home for an hour before going downtown.



When I got there, a former military rappel master - now with the NM… Continue

My practice rappels at Stone Age Climbing Gym

Posted on September 22, 2009 at 4:10pm 0 Comments

Last Saturday, September 19: When you're hooked up to the ropes, they ask you to sit back in the harness, stretch your legs out wide, and put your feet solidly on the wall. Then, you slowly release the rope and slide down.



If you're brave enough, you can bounce along the wall as you go down. I wasn't ready for that, but I felt a real sense of triumph when I got down to the bottom.



All OVER THE EDGE participants who were at the gym supported each other's practice… Continue

My preparations for my 14-story, 203-ft rappel

Posted on September 22, 2009 at 4:05pm 0 Comments

About a month ago, I started preparing by squeezing two release mechanisms (with both hands) that will be similar to the one I'll be using on Rappel Day this Thursday, 1:25 pm.



I'm up to about 30 each time I do it.



Occasionally, I also squeeze a small rubber ball.



This past Saturday, I went to Stone Age Climbing Gym, where the owners are offering free training classes to Over the Edge participants.



After being outfitted with a wait-to-knees harness, I… Continue

Just two days to go until my Thursday, September 24th Over the Edge rappel for Special Olympics NM

Posted on September 22, 2009 at 3:57pm 1 Comment

It's been a while since I posted, but I am delighted to report that I am closing in on $2,300 in contributions for my rappel. I've been receiving online donations at my personal page, www.firstgiving.com/Jane Blume



The required minimum donation to participate is $1,000 - so I am delighted by the response.



I thought I was going OVER THE EDGE this Friday, the 25th. However, because I'm the publicist for this event, and the media sponsor, they want me to do the deed on… Continue
