Bandits Team up with Special Olympics
BUFFALO, NY (April 7, 2012) --- The Buffalo Bandits have teamed up with Special Olympics New York by participating in the "Over the Edge" fundraiser on Thursday, July 26 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel.
Official spokesperson Mark Steenhuis will join Bandits teammates Tom Montour and Luke Wiles in an attempt to each raise $1,000 for the right to go "Over the Edge" in a high-profile building rappel. Last year, Montour and 119 other "edgers" rappeled 357 feet down the 27-story hotel and raised over $140,000 for Special Olympics athletes.
