Extra Credit: Going over the edge for Special Olympics

MPS employees successfully raised about $2,000 at the GO OVER THE EDGE for Special Olympics event at Miller Park, Saturday, July 19. Heather Dietzel, of MPS Facilities & Maintenance, and Katie Seitz & Lyndsay Dake, of Milwaukee Recreation, rappelled 90 feet down the side of Miller Park.

Several MPS Adaptive Athletics volunteers and MPS Facilities and Maintenance Staff represented MPS at the event along with friends and family members to support the rapellers down the near 100-foot descent.

Katie received previous belay training on the MPS Recreation High Ropes Course at Potters Forest.

MPS Adaptive Athletics will be awarded a percentage of the total donations raised from Go Over The Edge. MPS Recreation Department Staff oversee two City of Milwaukee Special Olympics agencies, MPS Adaptive Athletics, the school-based Special Olympics program and MPS Team Milwaukee, the community-based Special Olympics program.
