Over the Edge Fundraiser

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

More than 80 brave people in our community went over the edge of the First Interstate Bank building as a fundraiser for the Special Olympics of Montana.

Included in that group was Attorney General Tim Fox, who took the plunge on his birthday. Fox and every one of the rappellers raised at least $1,000 each to go to the Special Olympics Athletes to train and compete year round. Helping out the Special Olympics is the ideal way Fox wanted to spend his birthday.

"There are a lot of things I could being doing today, and I certainly will get a chance to spend some time with family, but my family are the people of Montana and the people of Special Olympics. So this is a natural for me. It's a great opportunity and I'm just really pleased to be here on my birthday. I can't think of a better way to spend a birthday," said Fox.

Donations for the Special Olympics can still be accepted. The goal for the Over the Edge fundraiser is $120,000. If you'd like to donate, click on Connections to find out how.
