Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa

Be one of our 2018 Thrill Seekers who'll have the honor of going OVER THE EDGE by raising $1,000 or more to provide local children and adults with intellectual disabilities the chance to participate in Special Olympics sports training and competitions at no cost to them or their families.


Enjoy the spectacular views of Waikiki and Diamond Head from the rooftop of the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa and feel the rush as you rappel down 40 stories. Event photographers will be on the rooftop and on the landing deck to capture your unique experience. Digital photographs will be made available to you on-line a few weeks after the event courtesy of Special Olympics Hawaii, so you can share your high-flying adventure with family, friends and all your fundraising supporters.

Challenge yourself to take your body and fundraising to new heights!  We ask all our 2018 Thrill Seeking Rappellers to raise as much as they can to help us reach as many athletes as we can!  You can even create or join a rappel team so you can help each other raise funds.

Space is limited so register today! We expect to fill every time slot!
