On May 11, Siegfried Advisory’s very own Erin Schieffer decided to climb down a 17 story building! As part of the Special Olympics of Delaware’s Over The Edge event, Erin rappelled down 17 stories (222 feet!) of the 300 Delaware Avenue building in Wilmington. The “Over the Edge” event allows 100% of all proceeds to go directly to the Special Olympics Delaware athletes and helps raise awareness. Erin was able to raise $1,643!!!
Siegfried Advisory’s very own Jeff Mitchell has been an active board member of the organization for 7 years! (Unfortunately, heights are Jeff’s kryptonite, so Erin graciously took his place.)
The mission of Special Olympics Delaware is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for more than 4,000 children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.
