It’s a bird, it’s a plane.. no it’s Wheelchair Man! No disrespect intended (for those sensitive types) Dale is awesome and even dressed in his best superhero outfit for this big accomplishment!
“Even as he carefully inched his way down the front of a 40-story building Sunday, descending in a titanium wheelchair using climbing ropes about the diameter of a finger, Dale Doornek took time to savor the view.”
“Doornek, of Sultan, was one of 160 participants in a rappelling event aptly named Over the Edgebut the only person to do so in a wheelchair. And he is the first person in Washington to accomplish the feat.”
“The two-day event, which ended Sunday, was a fundraiser for Special Olympics Washington. Its goal was to raise $250,000, enough to train and send eight Special Olympic athletes to events for a year, said Dan Wartelle, spokesman for Special Olympics Washington.”
Nicely done Dale!
