HPD's team "Special Forces" rappelled 20 stories down the side of the Embassy Suites Hotel this past weekend. Each member has raised more than $1,000 for Special Olympics Texas.
The two-day event began with Executive Assistant Chief Martha Montalvo and Edd Hendee, of Taste of Texas, rappellin. The remaining 13 members of team "Special Forces" went "Over the Edge" on Saturday afternoon.
Special Olympics Texas is a privately funded non-profit organization that provides year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
