CBC loves supporting Special Olympics, even if it means scaling tall buildings.  And recently the non-profit thanked CBC in a special way.  Special Olympics North Carolina (SONC) honored WRAL-TV and FOX 50 for our continued support of the Over The Edge fundraiser.

Since the first event, several members of the WRAL family have rappelled off the Wells Fargo building in downtown Raleigh, including Ken Smith, Mandy Mitchell, Elizabeth Gardner and Bill Leslie.

The event is the most lucrative fundraiser for SONC generating more than $100,000 each year.

The recognition happened during the Board of Directors end of year meeting on Thursday, December 10, 2015.  WRAL-TV Anchor Reporter Ken Smith accepted the honor on behalf of CBC.  He serves on the SONC Board.

Thanks to WRAL-TV’s Ken Smith for this capcom scoop & photo.
