In high school, I participated in a program helping coach children with disabilities and I have seen first hand how important it is for them to be involved in sports.

Austin Family Orthodontics, a respected orthodontic treatment facility in Austin, TX, will be sending a staff member to participate in the Over the Edge Law Enforcement Torch Run event. The grassroots fundraising event takes place on October 27, 2012 and will feature the selected Austin Family Orthodontics participant rappelling up to twenty stories down the side of the Hyatt Regency high-rise building in downtown Austin.
Donations Help Special Olympics Texas Competitors
The orthodontics practice will be holding a contest through their Facebook page to raise the $1,000 dollars needed to participate in the Over the Edge program. Family and friends are encouraged to visit the Austin Family Orthodontics Facebook page and ‘Like’ the staff member they wish to see rappel at the event. Users will then be provided with a link allowing them to make a donation. The money raised will provide further training and competitions for Special Olympics athletes in Texas.
Orthodontics with a Focus on Community
The Over the Edge event is an opportunity for Whitney Rankin, Treatment Coordinator at Austin Family Orthodontics, and her staff to not only raise money for a local non-profit organization but to meet the children they will be helping. “In high school, I participated in a program helping coach children with disabilities and I have seen first hand how important it is for them to be involved in sports,” says Rankin. In addition to this year’s fundraising contest, Austin Family Orthodontics has previously teamed up with the Rose Dental Group to host a "Rummage for the Cure" in an effort to raise money for the Susan G. Komen foundation.
